Adopt-A-County Road

Adopt-A-County Road

Modeled after a national program, the Adopt-A-County Road program began in 1990 as a way to keep roadways litter-free. The program has grown to:

  • approximately 1000 volunteers
  • 80 groups
  • 138 miles of roadway cleaned.

Volunteers find the program to be a positive experience that allows their group to interact with each other and their community.

To learn more about joining the program, please visit the “How to start” tab.
