Monthly Clean Up - In addition to the Spring Trash Off and Fall Trash Bash that we do each year, we conduct on a smaller scale a monthly clean up event which takes place at a different location each month. The event is the 3rd Saturday each month. People of all ages are welcome to participate with us!
May 16, 2015 - 9:30 to 11:30 - We have decided not to have a clean up on May 16th due to another event in town on the same day. The event is
Backing the Badge Event to Honor FM First Responders
"Have you ever felt compelled to “thank” the men and women who protect and serve this Town? Well here’s your chance! On Saturday, May 16, residents are invited to attend Backing the Badge, a citizen-sponsored day of appreciation for Flower Mound first responders. The all-day event kicks off at Lamar Middle School with a 5K fun run beginning at 8:30 a.m. After the race, the fun continues at Jake’s Hilltop Park with live entertainment, children’s activities, vendor booths, and food trucks. The featured event is sure to be a home run with residents, as the Police Department and the Fire Department go head-to-head in a softball game." This event is free!
We will have our next monthly trash clean up on June 20th from 9:30 - 11:30. Please join us! Earn honor society hours, community service hours, or just enjoy the outdoors!

Our Clean Ups Results!
In February, we had our monthly trash pick up and chose 2499 south of Lakeside to work on. We were able to remove 20+ bags of trash, 6 bags of recycles, a car back seat and a huge glass light fixture (broken in many pieces) thanks to 26 wonderful volunteers from the Young Men's Service League, National Charity Society, and teens and parents who worked two full hours in the cold and wind! The only sad part is that we did not get it all but there is always next month!

POST OAK ACORN GERMINATION AND PLANTING - Looking for a fall group project? This project takes place in October & November when the acorns are falling from the Post Oaks. These trees typically are not able to be transplanted and are not available in nurseries for re-planting. However, it is possible to grow Post Oaks from acorns and replant them in our landscape. The Town of Flower Mound would like to encourage you to join in and help re-establish Post Oak trees in our urban landscape. For instructions, follow the attached link.
