  • Evergreen resident still dedicated to helping injured birds

    Evergreen resident Jill Bozzy loves wild birds and devotes time to helping those that are injured. People in the community frequently call her for assistance when they find birds in need of care.

    “I’ll go catch a bird,” she says.

    Last week Bozzy received calls about an injured woodpecker, a green-back swallow with an injured wing, and a cormorant with a line and hook caught in its throat that was found at Evergreen Lake.

  • It’s complicated: Repair of 10th hole at Evergreen Golf Course involves multiple agencies

  • When picking a hometown, schools matter

    These life events just keep marching on. Our baby turns 21 next week.

    Since we moved to Evergreen almost 18 years ago, we’ve been through a lot of milestones. Two kids started school. Three kids completed elementary school, middle school and high school. Three kids had bat-mitzvahs. I turned 40 … and then 50 … and then more. (Luckily my wife is ageless and avoided these milestones.) We celebrated a silver wedding anniversary. Two kids graduated from college, one cum laude and as a member of Phi Beta Kappa.

  • Rare and interesting ferns grow in the foothills

    Ferns are not what one could call abundant in Colorado, but we have a few, including some that are rare and interesting.

    The large stands of tall ferns found in the moist, rich eastern woodlands are not to be found in our dry climate, but we do have some rock and cliff dwellers as well as a few that grow in the sub-alpine bogs and meadows.

    The most common fern in the Evergreen area is the delicate brittle fern, Cystoperis fragilis. The stipe or stem of this fern is dark brown to black at the base, shading to straw color or green.
