It's a beautiful early summer day here in Aspen and this will be a great afternoon for a serene Roaring Fork River Float at the scenic North Star Preserve east of Aspen. From 5 to 8pm, participants can float along the gentle streams of the Roaring Fork and enjoy some of the most important wildlife habitat in the upper valley. Representatives from the Pitkin County Open Space and Roaring Fork Conservancy will discuss the history of the open space and recent restoration activities as well as help you spot the wildlife in the area. Bring your own flotation device and boating option.
