Naturalist Nights is going virtual in 2021! Each winter, Wilderness Workshop partners with the Aspen Center for Environmental Studies and Roaring Fork Audubon to co-host the popular Naturalist Nights speaker series. While we couldn’t provide the traditional tea and cookies for this winter’s virtual series, we still brought a great line-up of experts to explore topics of the natural world with our community!
This year’s modified Naturalist Nights series included five virtual presentations, plus an upcoming Spanish translation for each. Thank you to all of our attendees who joined us live on Zoom and Facebook! Please follow the links below for a replay of each presentation.
