Free Tree Distribution. We are continuing to
participate in the Chevron Texaco annual tree planting
along the floodplains and public properties located in
the Cypress Creek watershed. The trees are available for
pickup starting in November and continuing on a
first-come, first-serve basis into January.
Stormwater Quality Marker Program. This is
another quality-of-life project with the goal of
reducing the pollution of the stormwater flowing out of
community streets into the tributaries and main channels
of the bayous and creeks throughout Harris County. It is
a very worthwhile project for scout troops, garden
clubs, home owner associations and other community
organizations. All materials and instructions are
provided free-of-charge. The CCFCC Board of Directors
encourages all MUD and Home Owner Associations in the
Cypress Creek watershed to participate in organizing
this project in your neighborhoods.
