9/23/23 – Post Cleanup Report – HWY 255 – Adopt A Highway
Thank you to all the volunteers who contributed to our Adopt-A-Highway cleanup initiative. The turnout was fantastic, and the section of the highway we focused on is critical in preventing litter from polluting the bay and ocean. We selected this area as it is a hot spot for garbage accumulation between the three bridges.
As a token of appreciation, we gave out different patches and vests, including a 10 cleanup patch, a 25 cleanup patch, a 100 cleanup patch, and four PacOut Green Team “Hall of Fame” patches for those who participated in over 150 cleanups.
Special thanks to the Fortuna High Creeks Club teachers and students, whose presence and assistance were critical to the success of the initiative. Once again, we thank all volunteers for their contributions in keeping these areas free from litter.
