  • Local fawn makes national news

    Evergreen has a new celebrity. Unfortunately, though, she has not been seen since making her debut, which was covered by Buzzfeed and news outlets across the country.

    The little four-legged star made local news after she wandered into a Kittredge family's yard on June 15.

    Today, June 20, is the summer solstice, the day that people of many races and cultures around the world celebrate as midsummer night’s eve, the longest day of the year and thereby the shortest night of the year.

    Memorial Day is cloudy and cool, with a bit of wind out of the north. People on the boardwalk along Main Street in Evergreen watch as a motorcycle tools by every few minutes. Sometimes the bike is accompanied by others; sometimes it’s alone; sometimes it’s playing music through a speaker; sometimes it’s moving to the tune of its own melodious engine.

    This scene is a staple of summer weekends. And with summer fast approaching, more motorcyclists will frequent Jefferson County’s canyon roads to enjoy the mountain scenery.

    Volunteers breathed life into the Buffalo Park Community Garden on Sunday, planting miniature pumpkins and other crops in some of the beds earmarked for educational use.

    “Now it has its own heart, it breathes, it’s alive thanks to the wonderful people of Evergreen,” Shawn Hamam, coordinator for construction at the garden, called out to the volunteers.

    While neighbor Pat Brewer painted the toolshed a color called "riesling grape," several families from Wilmot Elementary School gathered to plant seeds.

    As the song says, “June is bustin’ out all over,” and as usual, it is a glorious month. I believe it to be the most beautiful month of the year.

     After the fickle weather of April and May when we begin to think summer will never come, June arrives in all her glory. Overnight, everything is green. Nothing can equal the lush growth of June.

    (Reprinted from June 23, 2010)

    There have been several reports of white pelicans this spring, most on the reservoirs east of Denver and even a small flock on Evergreen Lake for part of one morning.

    White pelicans are regular migrants through the area and nesting summer residents on the prairie reservoirs in eastern and northeastern Colorado. White pelicans can be seen in both spring and fall at Barr Lake and other reservoirs. They nest at Riverside Reservoir and on prairie lakes northward into the prairie provinces of Canada.
