Attorney and Volunteer Max Broom of Forestville mowing the upper area of the Oaks Park.
The FPA Board recently installed three new trash can bins in the Downtown Forestville Oaks Park after years of discussion on what would work best. These bins have a narrower opening so that folks inclined to get rid of their household trash at the park.
Once again, it was a great effort by the wonderful folks in Forestville.
Be Fire Safe! Take advantage of the County’s Chipper Program!
They have purchased more chippers to help homeowners clear vegetation from their property.
The program is FREE but has specific rules to the length and width of what you’ll be chipping.
What a relief you’ll feel when those piles are gone!
Calling for Park Volunteers
The Forestville Downtown Oaks Park is interested in your help keeping this beautiful town treasure free of litter and cigarette butts. How about volunteering once a month to pitch in?
Dog lovers could change out the poop station for example. It doesn’t happen by magic but it could happen with your help! It’s not bad if it’s done once a week. More than that and not so much fun! And if you use that poop station please don’t put in bottles, cans and cups. Those make the bags tear as you lift bags out.
Volunteer working at the park – cutting blackberry branches along the wood bridge.
