Community Agriculture Alliance: Environmental Literacy Program helps school districts implement objectives 21.11.2014 Steamboat Pilot
Nationally, studies have shown that elementary school students spend less than 20 minutes per day in science education. Thankfully, Routt County schools are doing much better than that. As we approach Thanksgiving, we are thankful that the Steamboat Springs School District has included environmental literacy themes in two of its eight strategic objectives within its strategic plan. These objectives focus on developing “an understanding and appreciation of the relationship between the environment and human life” as well as encouraging students to “incorporate environmental consideration into their daily lives.” Yampatika is honored to help the Steamboat, South Routt and Hayden school districts implement these objectives through our Environmental Literacy Program. This three-part, standards-based, environmental education curriculum has been in the Routt County elementary schools for the past five school years, growing from 120 students in six classrooms to approximately 1,400 students in 80 classrooms ...

Community Connections: Routt County Council on Aging helps seniors stay in their own homes longer 19.9.2014 Steamboat Pilot
The groundwork for Routt County Council on Aging was laid in 1972 when a group of individuals formed a steering committee to initiate a home-delivered meal program for senior citizens in Routt County. This committee later formed Routt County Senior Services, which then became Routt County Council on Aging, Inc. RCCOA’s certificate of incorporation was issued June 13, 1977, and the organization received a non-profit 501(C)(3) designation Feb. 20, 1980. Since its inception in the 1970s, RCCOA has expanded far beyond its original purpose of providing home-delivered meals to seniors. Routt County Council on Aging is the sole provider of congregate meals and Meals on Wheels in Routt County. RCCOA provides freshly prepared, warm, nutritious meals to our Meals on Wheels patrons and at three meal sites with service four days per week in Steamboat, two days per week in Hayden and three days per week in South Routt. We also offer regular nutrition education and options for individual nutrition counseling. ...
