Mount Sopris, Bookcliff and South Side Conservation Districts are offering seedlings in cooperation with the Colorado State Forest Service. The nursery produces more than 2 million seedlings and shrubs each year for use as wildlife plantings, reforestation projects, windbreaks living snow fences and erosion control.

Area residents may order 35 different tree and shrub seedlings for delivery at the end of April. Through the program, landowners with two or more acres can revegetate their land for a minimal cost. Some species sell out so be sure to get your order in early. For an order form or more information go to or call the district office at 945-5494, ext. 105.

The Glenwood Springs and Rifle Branch libraries will be closing at 4 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 4, so staff can attend a holiday reception. Normal hours will resume at 10 a.m. Monday, Dec. 5.
