Aspen Center for Environmental Studies
Aspen Center for Environmental Studies (ACES) is a non-profit environmental science education organization with four locations in the Roaring Fork Valley: Hallam Lake, Rock Bottom Ranch, the Catto Center at Toklat, and Spring Creek. ACES Educators and Naturalists make more than 120,000 educational contacts each year, connecting people with nature in a meaningful way and creating a community of ecologically literate citizens. Programs include: environmental science education in schools and in the field, guided hikes and tours, field classes, kids camps, free lectures, community events, and more in the areas of ecological literacy, sustainable agriculture, forest health, and ecosystem restoration. ACES also partners with land trusts, public agencies, government entities, and other non-profits to steward our regional landscape.
