Gift of Nature & Education: With original and artful photography and illustrations, The Hidden Life Around Us includes a foreword by Bruce Finley, environmental writer for The Denver Post. There’s also an essay by acclaimed NatGeo nature photographer and filmmaker, Pete McBride as well as contributions by ACES’ Adam McCurdy and Chris Lane. This is beyond just a gorgeous hardback coffee table book – it is a project that has 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’s campus in the heart of Aspen. On this twenty-five-acre tract of wetland with a five-acre lake, 422 species have been identified. Eighty-one of those species are showcased in the book through striking color photographs and brief, fascinating descriptions.
