AVON — As the public affairs officer for the White River National Forest, Bill Kight is on the front line when it comes to newsworthy stories, both positive and negative.

His presentation “Sense of Place and Sacred Space on Public Places” at the Avon Public Library on Tuesday, part of the High Country Speaker Series, will encapsulate the story of the White River National Forest with a cast of characters — including all of us who live in, play in and enjoy exploring our public lands.

White River National Forest, established in 1891, spans 2.3 million acres. It is the most visited national forest in the nation, with more than 10 million visitors per year, and it offers a variety of recreation opportunities from highly-developed, year-round recreation near resorts to primitive backcountry exploits. Within the White River National Forest boundaries, there are 12 ski resorts, 10 mountain peaks taller than 14,000 feet, eight wilderness areas, four major reservoirs and 2,500 miles of trails.
