Chipper Program

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.

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.
