To accomplish its mission of maintaining a clean and flowing river, the FOR San Bernard Board of Directors and Environmental Committee will be presenting six programs on environmental subjects. Each will be free to the public, feature "subject matter experts" on the topics, and include plenty of question and answer time so that each participant gets the information he or she needs. Door prizes will be awarded such as a free septic system inspection, well water test, or termite inspection.
Starting in February, the following programs will be presented every four to six weeks at the FOR Community Center. Exact times and dates will be published in local newspapers and on the FOR website.

Care & Feeding of Your Septic System
First up, on Saturday, February 15th, Ryan Gerlich with the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension service will be telling you everything you need to know about your septic system. Ever wonder why some people have wires and pumps, floats and sprinklers on their systems while others just have tanks and buried pipes? How do those things work. And what can you do to avoid expensive repairs and sewage in your yard and your river? Ryan has the answers. Come hear his interesting and informative presentation at the FOR Community Center, 20450 CR 510-B, (Brazoria side of the river, one mile south of FM 521 bridge) on Saturday, February 15th, 10:00 am-12:00 noon. Public invited. Door prizes. Free!
