SPECIAL EVENTS

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.
