Retree Steamboat looking for volunteers
STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — The ReTree Steamboat community planting event will be held from 9 a.m. to noon Sunday at the Beaver Mitigation Project along the Yampa River at the Eighth Street Bridge.
ReTree is a program of the Yampa Valley Sustainability Council and its goal is to plant and care for native tree species that will, in turn, increase the diversity, structure, health and resilience of local forests and riparian areas.
The event and program is also a way to engage the community, and volunteers of all ages are welcome to participate.
This year, YVSC is working with Colorado State Forest Service and Colorado Parks and Wildlife on the project.
