Complete our survey on a Woodland Heights Aging Village by October 18.

Woodland Heights neighbors ages 45 and older are encouraged to complete our survey to determine the need and interest for the creation of an Aging Village in our neighborhood to assist seniors with their daily routine needs and possibly provide activities and opportunities for fellowship. After completing the anonymous survey, neighbors can share their contact information for an opportunity to win a $50 gift card from Laura Lee’s or Publix. Read more …

Help us highlight conservation practices in Woodland Heights.

Do you or your neighbors work diligently to ensure you’re cultivating best practices that leave the neighborhood and the watershed a better place? Is your yard (or a neighbor’s) a habitat for both native flora and fauna?

Then nominate your yard (or a neighbor’s) for our Conservation Yard of the Season program! We’re highlighting those yards, and the individuals and families who tend to them, that support best practices in conservation right here in our neighborhood. It’s similar to a “Yard of the Month” program that highlights the prettiest yards in a neighborhood; only our program highlights the yards that help our environment and the James River ecosystem!

Yards recognized must be those of active members of our Woodland Heights Civic Association. If you’re not a member, join today!

Nominate your yard (or a neighbor’s) today!
