Dunes Day to turn trees into dunes

Volunteers will meet from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday at Stahlman Park in Surfside Beach to stake old Christmas trees to rebuild the dune line. High tides from a series of tropical disturbances in the Gulf of Mexico last year wiped out the existing dunes.

TREE DROPOFFS Natural Christmas trees can be donated at these sites around Brazoria County. They should be free of all decorations. Brazoria County Parks Department offices, 313 W. Mulberry St. in Angleton Surfside Beach main entrance Manvel substation, 7313 Corporate Drive Precinct 1 office, 1432 Highland Park Drive in Clute Precinct 2 office, 21018 CR 171 in Angleton Precinct 3 office, 2508 N. Gordon St. in Alvin Precinct 4 office, 121 N. 10th St. in West Columbia Stella Roberts Recycling Center, 5800 Magnolia Parkway, Pearland Check with your city hall to see if they also are accepting trees

Driving along local streets, the signs of the holiday season ending are obvious from the stacks of items curbside, waiting for the resident’s heavy trash pickup day.
