Wednesday, Jan. 31 last day to drop off Christmas trees with Steamboat

The gift of giving continues this holiday season as residents recycle their Christmas trees with the city of Steamboat Springs, and the trees live on as mulch for city parks and homeowners.

People can safely dispose of their natural Christmas trees through Wednesday, Jan. 31 by dropping them off in the northwest corner of the Howelsen Ice Arena parking lot. Drop-off is available seven days a week from sunrise to sunset and all tinsel, ornaments, lights and nails must be removed, and wreaths are not accepted.

The mulch will be provided to residents on a first-come, first-serve basis in the spring as well as be used in city parks during the coming year.

Let’s Talk Health community forum slated for 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 31

The Routt to Work program will launch its first Let’s Talk Health community forum from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, jan. 31 at Bud Werner Memorial Library in Steamboat Springs.

The year-long, free program will focus on topics suggested by Routt County residents that will help them live their best and healthiest lives. It is held in collaboration with the Northwest Colorado Community Health Partnership. The first forum is set up for community members to share their questions so upcoming talks can be customized to answer those questions.

Arthur McFarlane II, from the Children’s Hospital Colorado, will be the featured speaker at the Jan. 31 forum. McFarlane serves as the population health analyst and community outreach coordinator for the hospital and will be discussing and taking questions pertaining to youth-related topics and initiatives.

Other topics that have already been selected for the upcoming year include nutrition, exercise and heart health. The forums are open to the public, and light refreshments will be served.
