There will be a collection box inside the Nature Center from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Monday through Saturday. If the Nature Center is closed, you can leave the flags on the back porch. 

At the end of October, the flags collected will be given to the Fairview American Legion for proper disposal during a flag retirement ceremony which will be announced at a later date.
