Talking Green

YVSC’s longest on-going program

Talking Green was started in April of 2007 with a comprehensive presentation by local Architect Rob Hawkins on Green Building. There were over 50 or 60 people that attended and packed Rex’s meeting space, and was sponsored by Fox Construction for the next two years in conjunction with the Green Team sponsored by the City of Steamboat Springs. YVSC took over the program starting in December of 2009, for a list of these following events, click on archive above. Talking Green has been held on the 4th Tuesday of the month at 5:30pm since its inception, unless otherwise specially scheduled.
