The BCHLOA is providing a match of up to $ 100.00 for members who
hire help to thin their properties. Please contact Lorna Glaunsinger
for details.


In order to maintain Firewise Community status, each property owner should maintain his/her property yearly by thinning the underbrush, limbing up tree branches to a 3-4 foot height and weed eating the love grass. All trimmings can be dropped off at the nearby Perley pit. To access the pit please contact  Lorna Glaunsinger (lglaunsinger@yahoo.com).  Lorna  and Mark Yarish (myarish@cox.net) serve as the Bonita Creek firewise coordinators.   Each year we ask that you provide Lorna with the number of hours you have worked on your property and your out of pocket costs for hiring an organization or individual to firewise your property.  This information is reported to the National Firewise Organization each December.



Thanks to all who have protected their properties and those of their neighbors.
