  • Relocation efforts underway for Gunbarrel prairie dogs as Celestial Seasonings development moves forward

    Kristen Arendt|Aug 17, 2022

    In July 2021, the Boulder City Council greenlighted the development of a 9.8-acre parcel of land near Celestial Seasonings in Gunbarrel, a long-time home to a large prairie dog colony. Over a year later, the first stage of the project is underway. The controversial development project, which will add 230 apartments, a cafe, library, art space, community areas, mobility hub, and green space to the land along Spine Road, has been a source of tension between Gunbarrel residents and the City of...

    Kristen Arendt|Jul 6, 2022

    On Monday, July 4, the Niwot Historical Society welcomed Fourth of July parade-goers to take a self-guided tour of the Niwot Fire House Museum as part of their patriotic revels. The Niwot Fire House, which was built in 1910 to house the Niwot area firefighting equipment, now is a tiny museum packed with local historic items, including classic school desks, an old anvil, old post office boxes, and other Niwot artifacts. Attendees young and old enjoyed a stop-off at the museum for a self-paced...

  • NCAA continues fundraising to purchase Ukrainian artist's sculpture

    Kristen Arendt|Jun 1, 2022

    "Kore That Awakening," a sculpture on loan from Ukrainian artist Egor Zigura, is getting closer to calling Niwot home. On April 1, the Sculpture Park Committee of the Niwot Cultural Arts Association (NCAA), made up of Anne Postle, Lisa Rivard, and Jill Whitener, kicked off a fundraising effort to purchase the sculpture. Since the event, the fund to purchase the $25,000 sculpture has continued to grow. Vicki Maurer, treasurer of the NCAA, said the total money raised to date sits at $9,899.60....

  • 'Small Town, Big Heart' campaign looks to summer fundraising to hit $100,000 goal

    Kristen Arendt|Jun 1, 2022

    Five months have elapsed since the Marshall Fire, and as the affected families continue the long process of rebuilding their homes and lives, Niwot's 'Small Town, Big Heart' campaign continues to drive on toward the Niwot Business Association's goal of donating $100,000 to victims of the devastating fire. Deborah Read Fowler, vice-president of the NBA and local broker at the Niwot Colorado Landmark office, has spearheaded the Small Town, Big Heart Wildfire Relief Fund campaign from day one. "I...

  • Prescribed burns planned on City of Boulder properties for 2022

    Kristen Arendt|Apr 6, 2022

    Where there's smoke, there's fire, but that's not always a bad thing. In the case of prescribed burns, fire is often used as a land management tool to help maintain agricultural properties, including ditches that provide water for open space farming and ranching operations. Prescribed burns are also used to help control plant growth and invasive weed species. After the recent Marshall Fire and the NCAR Fire, it's understandable for residents to be concerned when they see smoke - even if that...

  • Boulder County seeks community input on conceptual site plans for fairgrounds update

    Kristen Arendt|Mar 23, 2022

    Over the last 41 years, the Boulder County Fairgrounds has grown from a site singularly focused on hosting the Boulder County Fair to a multi-purpose venue supporting a wide variety of community events. While the fairgrounds is still home to the Boulder County Fair, it now hosts 1,500 annual events drawing over 400,000 visitors. It also operates as an evacuation center in times of disaster. Even as the use of the fairgrounds has dramatically increased in recent years, the facilities have not...

    Kristen Arendt|Mar 9, 2022

  • Seasonal closures for wildlife ensure shared lands for birds, bats and people

    Kristen Arendt|Mar 2, 2022

    The City of Boulder Open Space and Mountain Parks (OSMP) normally implements its first round of seasonal wildlife closures on Feb. 1, to protect cliff-nesting raptors such as peregrine falcons, prairie falcons, and golden eagles. For 2022, the City of Boulder OSMP will implement several seasonal closures to protect sensitive habitats that support many wildlife species, including cliff-nesting raptors, bald eagles, grassland-nesting birds, burrowing owls, and bats.

  • Eat your vegetables and support a local CSA

    Kristen Arendt|Feb 16, 2022

    Last summer was the first time I signed up for a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) membership with a local farm. I had long debated about getting a vegetable share, but for various reasons, mostly owing to my frazzled memory, I missed the spring sign-up window. By the time I remembered my good intentions, CSA registrations were usually filled, and I would have to content myself with picking up local fare at the weekend Farmer's Market. Not a bad option, mind you, though I only would ever go...

  • Keep your heart in mind this month-and every month

    Kristen Arendt|Feb 9, 2022

    February is American Heart Month and to kickstart your cardiovascular health, here are some astounding facts about the human heart. - The human heart pumps blood through the 60,000 miles of blood vessels in the body. By comparison, the distance around the Earth at the equator is about 24,901 miles. - Your heart beats approximately 100,000 times per day. That's about 5 times the number of breaths you take every day. - Each heartbeat pumps about 4 tablespoons of blood which amounts to around 1.5...

  • Don't let winter weather put the freeze on your workout

    Kristen Arendt|Feb 9, 2022

    The beginning of February finally brought the Arctic chill typical of a Colorado winter. With temperatures dropping below zero and highs barely above freezing, you could be forgiven if you traded your normal exercise routine for sitting by a blazing fire and sipping hot chocolate. We won't judge. But if you are feeling motivated, the ice, snow, and cold temperatures don't have to stop you from getting in your daily exercise. If you aren't inclined to hit the gym, you can still safely get outside...

  • Cottontail Trail improvements back on

    Kristen Arendt|Feb 2, 2022

Agrivoltaics, or the practice of growing crops in conjunction with solar panels, is Jack's Solar Garden's unique...

  • Be better prepared for urban wildfires with these eight tips

    Kristen Arendt|Jan 12, 2022

    In the wake of the Marshall Fire, many homeowners might be wondering how to be better prepared in case of future urban wildfires. Urban wildfires like the Marshall Fire, while relatively rare in Colorado when compared to the incidence of forest fires in the state, can be incredibly destructive and fast-moving, as the events of Dec. 30 proved. This type of fire is not entirely unprecedented as both the Black Forest Fire and Waldo Canyon Fire saw the destruction of homes at the wildland urban...

  • Proposed Highway 119 bikeway enters preliminary design phase

    Kristen Arendt|Jan 5, 2022

Since then, Boulder County has received more than 1,000 survey responses and 45 comments, in addition to the questions and comments from attendees of the meeting. The estimated timeline for the project has a preliminary design being...

  • Christmas brings tiding of new furry friends

    Kristen Arendt|Dec 29, 2021

    The story, names, characters, and incidents portrayed below are fictitious. Any resemblance to actual persons or Christmas 2021 events is purely coincidental. Jeremy and Megan weren't planning on getting a new puppy yet. Their 14-year-old dog had passed away the summer before and while they wanted another dog eventually, they weren't sure when that time would be. But when Jeremy stumbled across this particular puppy on the Human Society's website, he knew that pup was the one. Megan agreed as so...

  • Readers flock to the adventures of a birding Big Year

    Kristen Arendt|Dec 15, 2021

    As 2021 draws to a close, we look ahead to 2022 with hopes for a big (and better) year. However, few people likely have the same definition of a Big Year as local author and birding expert, John Vanderpoel. In May, Vanderpoel published his book "Full Chase Mode: Big Year of Birding in North America" which follows the 365 days he spent chasing a birding record in 2011, in an endeavor known in the birding world as a "Big Year." For birders, doing a Big Year is a kind of bucket list project. For...

  • Front Range Community College adds STEM degree and paid apprenticeships

    Kristen Arendt|Dec 15, 2021

    On Nov. 1, Front Range Community College (FRCC) announced that the college has received approval from the Higher Learning Commission to offer a new degree—a two-year Associate of Engineering Science (AES). FRCC is the first community college in the state of Colorado to offer this type of degree. Though FRCC has previously offered an engineering pathway for students wanting to pursue a bachelor's degree in engineering, the process of transferring FRCC credits to an accredited four-year program was often complicated since transfer agreements d...

  • Unseasonably dry weather impacts more than just the early ski season

    Kristen Arendt|Dec 8, 2021

    As the Christmas carol goes, it's beginning to look a lot like ... well ... not exactly Christmas. Or at least not a wintery December, as Niwot has yet to see any significant snow accumulation this season.. That, along with unseasonably warm temperatures, has residents wondering if winter will ever show up. And while Colorado's warm weather and dry conditions could easily change at the drop of a hat (as the saying goes, if you don't like the weather, wait five minutes) the longer-term consequenc...

  • 2021 Niwot 'Turkey Trot' features a festival of miles on the track

    Kristen Arendt|Dec 1, 2021

    Turkey Trots seem to be the ubiquitous activity of choice for many on Thanksgiving morning. These fun races vary in distance from 5k to 10k (sometimes longer, sometimes shorter) and usually feature more than a few people festively sporting a turkey outfit. This year, in lieu of trotting, some Niwot runners opted to take their Turkey Trot to the track - for a speedy mile run at the Turkey Mile 4 REAL. The event, which was put on by REAL Training, featured seven one-mile races hosted at the Niwot...

  • Little Shops at Niwot are holiday ready

    Kristen Arendt|Nov 17, 2021

    October 2021 marked the one year anniversary for the Little Shops at Niwot (7960 Niwot Rd., Suite D-15), a unique small business collaboration that began life last year as the Little Holiday Shops at Niwot. And though the storefront has rebranded and moved across the shopping center, the business, which functions as a type of co-op for local artists and vendors, has continued to see success. "When you think about it, there were a lot of pop-up vendors who lost their opportunity to do farmer's...

  • Niwot migrations: Birds of a feather fly great distances together

    Kristen Arendt|Nov 10, 2021

    Hundreds of Canada geese take off from the mowed fields around Dodd Reservoir where they have spent the day browsing for food. The evening sky is going purple after a clear day. Some of these geese make a fuss, honking as they take off. Others silently glide away, the turmoil of a disordered flock resolving into a giant V-formation that disappears into the distance. But where are they going? According to the Audubon Society, in North America, seven out of 10 bird species participate in either a...

  • Altona Grange Hall fundraising to match grant for exterior renovation project

    Kristen Arendt|Sep 1, 2021

    The Altona Grange Hall sits on a little over an acre on the corner of Nelson Road and North 39th Street. From its hilltop vantage point, visitors to this historic site can enjoy views that stretch all the way to the Flatirons on a clear day. Yet few people may know the history of this unassuming, tidy building - or be aware that the 126-year-old structure is due for a facelift to restore its exterior to its 1895 origins. This facelift is the latest project in a restoration effort that began in...

  • 3rd Avenue Pollinator Garden Project adds beauty and fights habitat fragmentation

    Kristen Arendt|Aug 25, 2021

    For Niwot resident, Cathy McCall, gardening is much more than a casual weekend hobby. McCall, who lives on 3rd Avenue in downtown Niwot, has used her enthusiasm for gardening to not only curate her own yard into a pollinator (and wildlife) paradise, but she has also been helping her neighbors turn little corners of their property into similarly inviting oases of flowers, shrubs, and grasses. Her latest project is a pollinator garden on the corner of 3rd Avenue and Franklin, where Niwot resident...

  • Heil Valley Ranch restoration process underway after Cal-Wood Fire

    Kristen Arendt|May 26, 2021

    Last year, the Cal-Wood Fire burned 10,113 acres and damaged or destroyed 26 structures.

  • Show a little love for our Left Hand Valley public lands

    Kristen Arendt|Feb 10, 2021

    Growing up, I remember a cover of Joni Mitchell's "Big Yellow Taxi" playing regularly on the radio. The last lines of the chorus have always stuck with me: Don't it always seem to go / That you don't know what you got 'til it's gone / They paved paradise to put up a parking lot. Truly, I didn't know what I had growing up in Colorado until I took a short excursion to live in another state. I traded the Rocky Mountains for a brief stint in central Texas, and it didn't take me long to see that I...

  • 'Watch the birdie' in your own backyard

Jamie Simo, store manager of Front Range Birding Company in Boulder, said you don't have to wait for spring to start bird watching in the area. "We always get really...

  • Beating the odds: one woman's story of surviving coronavirus

    Kristen Arendt|Jan 13, 2021

    On June 11, 2020, a beautiful flower bloomed somewhere in Japan. That same day in Colorado, Gunbarrel resident Beniko Olsen drove home with her family after 45 days in the hospital fighting for her life after contracting COVID-19.

This includes some areas of Indian Peaks Wilderness, Rocky Mountain National Park, and other high alpine zones where locals might be headed to find fresh powder. These local...

    Kristen Arendt|Dec 23, 2020

    Like many first-time business owners, Stacey Slupik didn't know exactly what to expect when she started her flower farm business in 2020. What started as a passion project for Slupik, a mother of three who discovered flower farming in her search for a fulfilling creative outlet, quickly grew into a way for Slupik to share her newfound love of home-grown flowers with the local community. Unknowingly, she picked a year to start her flower farm when people were actively looking for ways to bring jo...

    On March 5, 2020, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment's public health laboratory confirmed the first presumptive positive COVID-19 test result in Colorado. What followed is well known to Coloradans, but looking back to March, there are some behind-the-scenes heroes from the early months of the pandemic who deserve some added thanks, namely the volunteers and organizations who helped support early mask-making endeavors in local communities. When COVID-19 cases were first on t...

  • Niwot Historical Society hosts lecture on the history of women's suffrage in Colorado

    Kristen Arendt|Oct 28, 2020

    4 marks the centennial anniversary of the 19th Amendment which guaranteed women the constitutional right to vote in the United States. However, this year does not mark the 100th year of women voters in Colorado as the state actually granted women voting rights in 1893, 27 years before the 19th Amendment was ratified in 1920. The Niwot Historical Society will be exploring the history of women's suffrage in Colorado with Dr. Rebecca Hunt in the latest NHS Now & Then fall lecture series. Hunt's...
