Eagle — Explore the Holy Cross and Eagle’s Nest Wildernesses with John Fielder at the Eagle Public Library’s 20th anniversary party on Wednesday at 6 p.m.

Wilderness exploration

Join Fielder for a multimedia presentation with more than 200 images, music, stories and photography tips. Participants will experience the joy of life in the Eagle County wilderness viewing waterfalls, reflection ponds and lakes, serrated peaks and wildflowers galore within those nooks and crannies of the mountains. Eagle County is framed by the northern end of the Sawatch Range within the Holy Cross Wilderness and the west side of the Gore Range in the Eagles Nest Wilderness.

Some people “might only have viewed (these mountains) on a ski day from the top of Vail Mountain,” Fielder said.

He added that his presentation may inspire viewers to start thinking about their own wilderness hikes for the season.

“When the Eagle Public Library opened its doors 20 years ago, John Fielder was the inaugural speaker. Now he’s returning to the library on the exact date, which makes this presentation special,” said Robyn Bryant, Eagle Public Library’s Adult Services Librarian.

Fielder is Colorado’s preeminent nature photographer. He has explored most of Colorado’s 65 million acres on foot, by raft and ski, including each of the state’s 44 federal wilderness areas. Fielder’s popular Colorado coffee table and guidebooks, as well as children’s books, will be for sale and book signing will be available before and after the presentation.

Additionally, there will be celebratory cake for all who attend. For more information, please visit the website, http://www.evld.org, or call the Eagle Public Library at 970-328-8800.
