Matching challenge made for Trail Maintenance Endowment Fund
The Trail Maintenance Endowment Fund has announced a $3,000 matching challenge that will run today to June 28 to support maintenance of non-motorized trails in Routt and Moffat counties. The challenge is based on to a donation from the Three Moon Fund at the Yampa Valley Community Foundation.
Starting today, the Three Moon Fund will match donations until the goal of $3,000 is reached by June 30. As an all-or-nothing matching challenge, if the community does not match the $3,000 challenge, the trails fund will not receive the donation. In addition to one-time donations, the Three Moon Fund has agreed to match new monthly donations.

Seasonal changes take effect in dog parks, off-leash trial areas
As the city transitions toward summer, seasonal changes are taking place in portions of three off-leash trial areas including Blackmere, Butcherknife and Whistler Park. Segments of these parks were off-leash or leashed in winter on a trial basis but that has changed for summer.
Off-leash areas are clearly signed at entry/exit points with a map outlining details. Off-leash hours in both dog parks and the four trial off-leash areas run from one hour after sunrise to one hour before sunset. Voice and sight control as well as dog waste disposal is also required.
Additional information and maps highlighting the dog parks and off-leash trail areas can be found at steamboatsprings.net/offleash.
