This past February YVSC was notified that we are recipients of the Arbor Day Foundation’s Excellence in Volunteer Management Award in the Arbor Day Foundation’s 2015 National Awards Competition for our ReTree Steamboat event/program. The Excellence in Volunteer Management Award is presented to a community, group, or organization for their outstanding efforts to mobilize and engage volunteers in tree planting and care within a community.  The Award will be presented at the Arbor Day Awards Ceremony on April 24th in Nebraska City, NE.

YVSC is honored to receive this award and to continue to be stewards of the ReTree Steamboat legacy that we have helped to organize since 2010, and thanks Arbor Day Foundation for this prestigious award!  Each June we strive to plant thousands of trees throughout Routt County and require hundreds of volunteers to help us do this.  To learn more about ReTree Steamboat and to see where we’re planting this year, please visit
