At Evergreen Lake, a love affair with the planet

A large banner with a photo of the planet Earth hung over the entrance to the Evergreen Lake House on Saturday, waving in the wind above those who came to the 27th annual Mountain Area Earth Day Fair.

“The people in Evergreen absolutely love nature, and they’re dedicated to making sure we always have nature. That’s been kind of exciting to see,” said Colleen Kulesza, the new director of the Evergreen Nature Center, which opened for the season on Saturday.
