A dose of wilderness education

Aspen native and Olympic snowboarding medalist Chris Klug reminisces about an experience he had with a mountain lion during a seminar at Aspen High School Tuesday that wrapped up the five-day EcoFlight Across America event. The program delved into the diverse values and multifaceted perspectives of wilderness. EcoFlight provided aerial tours of existing and proposed wilderness areas in Colorado, Wyoming, and Utah, and on-the-ground field trips and discussions that include a range of voices weighing in on wilderness policy, and a study of the tools for protecting current and future wild lands.
