MANAGEMENT PLAN UPDATE BEGINS IN FALL 2019 The 2015 North Star Nature Preserve Management Plan will be the focus of an update starting in the fall of 2019 and continuing into 2020. Those who are interested in this planning process are invited to sign up for email updates (see below).
An online survey to collect public input will occur this fall. Watch this page for details.
The 2015 North Star plan is available for download below. It guides management of roughly 245 acres of open space just south of Aspen that encompass significant wetland and riparian areas as well as other important wildlife habitat. The plan also addresses human use of North Star, where floating the Roaring Fork River during the summer months has become increasingly popular.
