    The bridge over Bear Creek at the entrance to Evergreen Lake Park will be replaced this fall, meaning there will be no vehicle access to the park for several months.

    Walking through the parking lot of Evergreen Country Day School, there is a delicious mixture of smells and bright colors.

  • 200 bikers bark up a charitable tree

    The love of both motorcycles and canines converged on Sunday at Chow Down in Bergen Park as nearly 200 bikers participated in the Molly-Dharma Run, with this year’s beneficiary the Evergreen Animal Protective League.

    Participants rode from the Platte River Bar & Grill in Littleton to Evergreen to meet some of EAPL’s adoptable pets, then on to Central City, returning to the T-Bird Roadhouse in Wheat Ridge for a party and silent auction. EAPL will receive the proceeds from registration fees and the auction.

  • New exhibit at Mirada Fine Art takes a walk on the ‘wild’ side

    Wild: Some are born to be it, some explore it on foot or in four-wheelers. Next weekend, Mirada Fine Art explores the animal kingdom of the West with “WILD,” a new exhibit featuring work from a dozen artists who have their own ideas about what it means to be wild.

    According to gallery owner Steve Sonnen, the exhibit resulted from a conversation about Colorado wildlife and how much of the artwork showcased at the gallery represents nature and its wild denizens.

  • Kids learn to fish on the fly

    The Buchanan Ponds were teeming with life on Saturday — not fish or other critters, but more than 100 people fly-fishing as part of the High Plains Drifters’ Kids Day.

    The fish weren’t really biting, but that didn’t seem to matter to the young and old alike, who were practicing their fly-fishing skills.

    The High Plains Drifters fly-fishing club, based in Denver, hosted its 23rd annual Kids Day at the North Evergreen location because members said it was the perfect venue to teach kids about their passion.
