With warmer temperatures and already more traveling public, BCA is kicking off its coordinated Adopt-A-Highway campaign.

Several local entities, among them the LDS ward, Boulder Town, Anasazi Museum, and the Boy Scouts, have already claimed their 2-mile segments for litter pickup.  BCA’s plan is to ensure the entire stretch of HWY 12 from Homestead Overlook on the mountain to the Hogsback is being monitored and picked up by someone.

The initial cleanup kickoff just occured on March 13.  Volunteers gathered at the intersection of Hell’s Backbone Road and HWY 12 to see how many bright orange bags could be filled with trash.

With  many hands making light work, expect to see regular announcements in Pegboard and Facebook on upcoming cleanup rendezvous’.  Better yet, keep a bag in the back of your car, just in case.

If you are interested in adopting a stretch of our scenic highway, please contact us or get in touch with organizer and BCA board member, Mike Putiak.
