PROPANE EXCHANGE ... Palo Alto's propane exchange program, which enables residents to trade in their empty single-use propane cylinders for a full, reusable one that is more environmentally friendly, will end on June 30. The city mailed out vouchers in April that can be used to exchange 1-pound cylinders at the Household Hazardous Waste Station at 2501 Embarcadero Way. For more information about the exchange program, go to CityofPaloAlto.org/RFYF.

FILOLI ORCHID JUDGING... Filoli has teamed up with the American Orchid Society to establish a series of monthly orchid judgings at the historic home through the end of this year. As the American Orchid Society's Pacific Central Judging Center, visitors will have the opportunity to view blooming orchids, learn about orchid care and have their own orchids judged. Judging takes place at 9:30 a.m. on the third Saturday of each month in the Visitor Center. Plant entry is from 9-9:30 a.m. The next judging will take place on Saturday, June 15. Filoli is located at 86 Canada Road, Woodside. For more information, go to paccentraljc.org.
