Evergreen Highlands Association
Evergreen Highlands is a 230-lot community nestled in the scenic foothills of the Rocky Mountains. Located about 35 miles from downtown Denver and only 53 miles from the Continental Divide, Evergreen Highlands is a vibrant community that is also a perfect jumping-off point for enjoying the city or the mountains. The community's amenities include tennis courts, a playground, fishing in the pond, volleyball, softball and many social events. Our community also features a historic barn where events and meetings are held. Evergreen Highlands is a great place to live and play!
Bears and Foxes
Please do not leave trash cans out overnight during the months when bears are active (March-November). Wait to put cans out on the morning of pick-up. Bears' sense of smell is 100 times more sensitive than ours: bears can smell food five miles away. Bears also have great memories; once they find a food source, they will return, becoming a hazard to people and pets.
Please do not feed foxes or other wild animals. The ecosystem supplies adequate food for native species. According to Wildlife Officers, feeding wild animals develops dependency and encourages aggressive behavior towards pets and people.
