Description

The mission of YVSC is to be a resource and catalyst to advance sustainability in the Yampa Valley. We do this through education and outreach, tools and resources, advocacy and service projects.
YVSC connects, engages and supports businesses, schools, individuals, events and local governments and environmental organizations in the effort to conserve resources and reduce our community's carbon footprint.
Through a diverse array of program offerings that impact every sector of the community, YVSC is bringing our community together to increase energy efficiency, waste diversion and carbon sequestration to sustain the Yampa Valley for future generations: Our Waste Diversion program encompasses Sustainable Events, Recycling and new Food Waste initiatives, which are reducing household food waste and rescuing surplus food from restaurants; the Sustainable Schools program is creating a culture of sustainability in schools through waste diversion, energy efficiency and tree-planting projects; Talking Green is a monthly adult education series on various environmental topics; the Green Building program educates the building community and residents about building and remodeling sustainably; the Energy program encourages energy conservation and renewable energy; and ReTree Steamboat connects the local community, especially youth, to their forest and environment.
