CKF is a national nonprofit located in Aspen, Colorado that promotes organ, eye, and tissue donation and transplantation awareness through education, inspiration, and registration. We honor and celebrate donors and recipients.CKF strives to eliminate the wait for the 106,000 people on the transplant waiting list. Approximately 96% of Americans support organ, eye, and tissue donation, but only 54% actually register. Every day 22 people die waiting for a lifesaving transplant. One organ donor can save the lives of 8 people, and one tissue donor can impact the lives of 75 people. Furthermore, organ, eye, and tissue donation is supported by most major religions, does not discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation, gender, gender identity or expression, race, income, social status, or age (the oldest donor in the world was 107, and the youngest was 74 minutes).

Register now https://www.tclf.org/garden-dialogues-2022-aspen-co to explore the 73-acre Charlie Mountain Ranch that has been revived by Design Workshop as a diverse and ecologically-rich landscape. Resting in the shadow of adjacent peaks, Charlie Mountain Ranch is located at the end of a wide, glacially-carved valley in western Colorado. Since its settlement in the late 1800s, the property has long been valued for its fertile soils, rolling terrain, and access to the valley’s arterial creek. In collaboration with architect Pearson Design Group, Design Workshop rejuvenated the ranch as a family compound. Because the scenic, cultural, and ecological values of the ranch are integral to the rural nature of the surrounding community, designers sought to ensure that the proposed design responded to regional development patterns, wildlife habitat, wildfire prevention, creek and water conservation, and responsible land management and stewardship.

Aspen Chamber – Discover the Untold Stories Existing Throughout the Year.
More than 60 years ago, Aspen made a name for itself as a winter destination when visionary skiers, philosophers, and locals created a cultural hub high up in the Rocky Mountains centered around skiing. Those same visionaries also launched the Aspen Institute and the “mind, body, spirit” ethos that established Aspen as the original cultural mountain town. Today, those who live in Aspen often say they came for the winter but stayed for the summer.
Aspen Chamber – The Summer
Warm-weather months showcase the depth of Aspen’s cultural and intellectual offerings, as well as culinary and outdoor adventure opportunities. An Aspen vacation is a mind, body, and spirit experience, whether learning a new skill, feeding a fascination, or simply absorbing the mountain spirit.
