Master Gardener Volunteers   arrow

an Evening with the Master Gardeners 2018

Routt County is very lucky to have a thriving and active group of Colorado Master Gardeners (CMG) who volunteer more than 2,000 hours of their time each year to serving our community.  These dedicated volunteers assist the Routt County -CSU Extension staff by providing knowledge and research-based information to the public.  Their reward?  Thriving landscapes all over the county and life-long friendships.
