KFMB has decided that 2016 will be the year of education. With Flower Mound constantly growing, it is more important than ever that we keep our town clean and litter free. Today we are learning that our environmental resources are limited and quite sensitive to our actions. In order to make sure that future generations will not experience a worse environment, we need to be aware of the ideals and requirements of sustainability. With the support of our board members, sponsors, and dedicated volunteers we hope to continue educating and practicing environmental sustainability.
We will be adding a variety of educational classes focusing on : Rain Harvesting, Composting, Native Plant Life, and Recycling. We are also in need of Adopt A Spot Sponsors for several locations throughout the town. If your family, group, or business is interested in adopting a section of our town please visit the Adopt a Spot page in our menu.
If you are looking for a different way to volunteer through our organization we are looking to fill our board with 3-5 new members. Serving as a board member is a perfect way to impact the town community and environment in a positive way. Consider joining our great organization.
Have a great year!
