What is Threatening our Aspen Forests?

Swaner Preserve and EcoCenter

Our mission is to preserve the land and the human connection to the natural landscape, to educate the local and broader communities about the value of nature, and to nurture both the ecosystem and the people connected with it.


Aspen is an iconic tree in the Rocky Mountain West. Fluttering leaves and golden fall foilage make this species a natural standout on the hillsides of Park City. Lichens growing on trees are much less well known, but play a strong role in nature's web. Join Swaner EcoCenter and Paul Rogers, director of the Western Aspen Alliance, as we develop an appreciation for aspens and lichens and learn to see the dazzling display of miniature plants all around us. This presentation will explore the ecology and relationships of aspens and lichens as well as larger issues affecting western forests.
