Villa Park Marine Thanksgiving- Cancelled

Camp Pendleton will NOT be allowing their Marines to be “adopted” this Thanksgiving nor are we allowed to bring them food.  However, they still need our help…

Since you will not be able to adopt a Marine this Thanksgiving perhaps you will consider donating to this cause instead.  Make an online donation directly to the Camp Pendleton ASYMCA at: https://www.asymca.org/camp-pendleton-donate  (please note this works on a desktop but not so great on a mobile phone or ipad)

Thank you in advance for supporting this cause and we will keep you posted if there is an opportunity to do more come the holidays.  We are saddened our normal event won’t happen this Thanksgiving but we can take satisfaction in knowing we are helping out our beloved Marines with school supplies.

 

Wildfire Preparedness

Wildfire Preparedness

The height of wildfire season begins in mid-summer and runs through early autumn. During the weeks preceding this season, it is important for residents to educate themselves on how to best protect themselves, their homes, and their communities from the threat of wildfire. 

Depending on fire intensity, size and wind speed, embers can be carried more than a mile ahead of the fire. Consequently, homes located blocks away from the flame front are vulnerable to ignition and complete destruction. It's important to create a wildfire action plan now, long before a wildfire threatens your home. For more information on how to prepare for wildfire season, click here

Coyotes in the Community

Coyotes in the Community

Residents may begin to notice an increase in coyote presence as the coyote mating season starts in late January through February and with pups born between March and April. Coyotes can be aggressive and protective during mating or when protecting their litter of pups. As we approach the Spring season, water and food sources become more readily available to coyotes and wildlife in general, as well as the extensive growth of vegetation which provides ideal conditions for a coyote den. 

Please click here to go to OC Animal Care's website to report coyote sightings, to see where there have been coyote sightings within your neighborhood, and for information on reporting aggressive coyote behavior.
