April 2023 Evergreen Giveaway: ACES Morning Birding Outing with "Birds of Aspen and the Roaring Fork Valley" author Rebecca Weiss

Update as of May 3: This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to our winner, Philip of Aspen!

Discover the diverse birdlife of the Roaring Fork Valley on an early morning ACES birding outing with renowned Naturalist and author Rebecca Weiss!

Designed for birders of all experience levels, outings focus on birding tips, sharing observations, and the fun of connecting with nature.

Taking place at either ACES’ Hallam Lake Nature Preserve in Aspen or Rock Bottom Ranch in Basalt, you and your guest will experience a brief orientation, followed by birding in the field. Every outing is a treasure hunt in the diverse habitat of the Roaring Fork Valley and offers rich opportunities to learn about bird behavior, identification, migration, and local habitats.

In addition, this giveaway winner will take home and explore two copies of Birds of Aspen and the Roaring Fork Valley by Rebecca Weiss and Mark Fuller.
