Important Water Reminder

Dear Neighbors,

With the weather warming and summer months fast approaching, many of us will soon begin watering our lawns and gardens.  While this is not a problem in and of itself, it is important to remember that water is a critical resource and we need to do our best to conserve it. According to the Madison Water Utility, the average Madison home uses 64 gallons of water per day during the summer months. Our goal is to reduce that usage to 58 gallons per day by 2020 – here’s how you can help.

Upcoming Wednesday Night Weeding

Join your neighbors in helping weed the area between Glenway golf course and Forest Hills cemetery before flowering garlic mustard goes to seed! Volunteers can meet at southwestern entrance to the park as it intersects with SW commuter path (this is the entrance closest to Glenway Street and Glenway golf course, not the cemetery) or look for signs. 

Wednesday, May 18 from 5-7pm

Wednesday, May 25 from 5-7pm
