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!
November 15, 2014 - 9:30 to 11:30
November Location: CHANGE OF LOCATION! Due to the addition of sidewalks on Flower Mound Road where we were going to do the trash clean up we have changed the location to a section of 2499/Long Prairie - between Lakeside Pkwy and Flower Mound Road - will start at Lakeside Parkway and move north. We will have supplies at the north west corner of the Home Depot Parking lot.
Please let us know if you see a location in town that could use our attention!
Rain Barrel Sale:
KFMB will be having a rain barrel sale to celebrate America Recycles Day! Rain barrels are also important for our environment because they help reduce water pollution by decreasing the amount of stormwater runoff reaching our streams and rivers. They also help to lower your water bills, particularly in the summer months by collecting thousands of gallons of free water a year that you don’t have to buy! For more information on our sale and why you should purchase a rain barrel please see the attached document below.

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.
