This is beyond just a gorgeous hardback coffee table book - this is a project that has the potential to bring people together locally and globally through interactive nature education. This book grew out of a BioBlitz to survey the species at Hallam Lake Nature Preserve, ACES' campus in the heart of Aspen.

Eighty-one of those species are showcased in the book through striking color photographs and brief, fascinating descriptions. $55. Buy Here: ACES Hidden Life Around Us
