Pitkin County Open Space and Trails will host an open house on Thursday, Dec. 12 to discuss future management of North Star Nature Preserve and seek input from the community.
The event, from 4-7 p.m., will take place at Local Coffee House, 614 E. Cooper Ave., Aspen. There will be snacks and drink specials. The public is welcome to come ask questions, review maps and other informational materials, talk with OST staff and fill out a survey that will help inform an update to the North Star Management Plan. The survey is also available online at www.pitkinOSTprojects.com (click the North Star Nature Preserve link). The survey will be open through Jan. 6, 2020.
The current North Star Nature Preserve Management Plan, adopted by county commissioners in 2015, is due for an update that will be completed in 2020. Survey responses will help shape a draft of an updated plan, which is scheduled for review by the Pitkin County Open Space and Trails Board in early February. Then, another round of public comment will follow.
Anyone who enjoys North Star Nature Preserve, winter or summer, or is interested in its future management, is encouraged to stop by the open house and fill out the survey.
