Volunteers needed through Saturday at Old Ranch
Volunteers are needed this week to help tear down and salvage the Old Ranch on 13th Street. Head past the Steamboat Springs Transit bus depot on 13th Street, and turn into the Precision Repair entrance. Continue driving, and you'll see workers tearing down the old structure so the Autism Foundation Greenhouse can be built in its place. The wood is aged two-by-four wood flooring, and organizers are hoping to keep materials from going to the landfill. Call John Fielding at 970-846-3012 with questions.
