  • A party at the finish line

    There’s nothing quite like a party done Evergreen style.

    The party after the Freedom Run on Saturday definitely fit the bill: a sea of blue T-shirts worn by the nearly 1,000 participants in the 5K run/walk, and red T-shirts worn by hundreds of volunteers who made the race and party happen.

    How fitting for the 34th annual July 4 morning tradition that benefits Mount Evans Home Health Care & Hospice.

  • 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.

  • Kids learn you can’t take it with you

    Imagine you’re getting ready to travel in a covered wagon across the plains to Colorado during the mid-1800s. What would you take with you?

    That question was posed to a group of 7- to 12-year-olds during Pioneerpalooza last week at the Hiwan Homestead Museum.

  • Warblers’ beautiful songs fill the air in the foothills

    I can hear what I believe to be a yellow warbler singing, but I haven’t seen it yet, so I am not positive of my identification because I don’t trust my ears. Unfortunately, my hearing is not what it used to be.

  • Building trades program to be revived at Conifer High

    Two Evergreen businessmen have revived a building trades program for high school students that flourished more than a decade ago.

    “We’re going to teach them a trade,” said builder David Graham, who is coordinating the program with Phil Shanley of Evergreen Fine Art. “At the very least, they’re going to learn to do something with their hands.”

    The program will teach students a trade while also meeting a need for skilled labor, Shanley said.

    A community garden planned at Wilmot Elementary School has received $44,000 from Great Outdoors Colorado to help fund the project.

    This second garden being developed by Evergreen’s Alliance for Sustainability will offer about 30 plots for students, teachers and residents, including senior adults. The garden design features a nature-based play area for youngsters, which includes a green tunnel and rocks for climbing and sitting, as well as a sensory learning center.
