Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers has announced its Young Stewards Initiative, a program aimed at developing a lifelong sense of stewardship of public lands in today’s youth. Under the direction of new Youth Coordinator Hannah Lippe, the nonprofit’s goal is to raise awareness among youth about public lands, trails and the teamwork it takes to sustain them. On each family-friendly RFOV project, the youth coordinator will delegate important and age-appropriate tasks to kids, and break up the day with some fun and educational outdoor activities. The family-friendly projects include the Smuggler Mountain Trail and Restoration Project on Aug. 18, and the Anderson Lake Trail Restoration on Sept. 8.For more information or to register, contact Lippe at 970-927-8241 or
