YardApes Fall Day of Service 2017

"Apes", local business associates from BNI Brookfield Bobcats, and their families combined forces in an amazing morning of community service on November 4th, 2017.
Five local nonprofits benefited from YardApes' need-based initiative. 

Our mission: “demonstrating goodwill and environmental stewardship in revitalizing the places where people live, work, and play.”


Pratt Nature Center (New Milford CT)


The 201-acre wildlife preserve and environmental education center had parking lots, entrance gardens in need of pruning, fall cleanup, and general winter preparation.


Harrybrooke Park (New Milford CT)

A massive leaf cleanup, in conjunction with other local landscape contractors, volunteers, and YardApes resulted in healthier turf and safer conditions for the thousands of local residents that utilize the park annually.


Macricostas Preserve (Washington CT)

Volunteers collected and removed branches, leaves, nuts, and nuisance organic matter from areas on the property that posed a tripping hazard to visitors.


St. John’s Episcopal Church (New Milford CT)

Volunteers collected  a plethora of leaves, branches, and other organic materials from the Church’s property, finishing off the job with full vacuum service and removal from the in-town property.


The Children’s Center (New Milford CT)

YardApes, BNI Business Bobcats of Danbury, and their families collected several yards of organic leaf matter, pine needles, branches, and other obstructions from the property and parking lot. Our vac truck operator visited and removed all materials at the completion, leaving a tidy space for parents and children to enjoy into the Winter season.
