See ‘the other side’ of North Star on ACES walk
Aspen Center for Environmental Studies will give people a chance Wednesday to explore the “far side” of North Star Preserve, which is otherwise closed to the public.
Jim Kravitz, ACES director of Naturalist Programs, will lead “Take a Walk on the Other Side.”
“This small group experience will meander through the entire length of the preserve, traversing riparian areas and aspen fans along the flanks of Aspen Mountain,” says ACES’ description of the event. “Along the way we will discover, observe and learn about the rich animal and plant life that make North Star their home.”
The walk will be held 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. It is free but advance registration is required at http://www.aspennature.org.
Addition walks at North Star will be held Friday, Aug. 5 and Saturday, Sept. 15, all from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. (ACES initially provided an incorrect time for the events.) Registered participants will be told where to meet for the event.
Start a dialogue, stay on topic and be civil.

Vail broke the $200 lift ticket barrier during the holidays last winter. Aspen hasn’t topped the $200 mark yet, but both resorts are raising their peak prices this season.
