Adopt-a-Highway Cleanup
Saturday, Nov 06, 2021, 9am - 11am
 
This Saturday it's a special Highway Cleanup.  By helping, you can make a difference for AOF as well as the environment.
 
How? Because CalTrans will remunerate AOF with a payout for every sturdy freethinker who shows up to clean litter this Saturday morning.
 
It's the Clean California Stipend Program, and we are jazzed to be part of it!
 
So join us please. Enjoy a morning commune with nature, and do a deed for the environment and local area wildlife. The refuse we collect would otherwise ultimately be swept by the rain into tributaries and into the ocean, degrading habitat, and leading to a slow death for many sea creatures.
 
The location is the tidy stretch of Highway 99 running two miles from Elkhorn Boulevard to Elverta Road. Sac-area freethinkers "adopted" it in July 1995. It's tidy because we have cared for it, nurtured it, lovingly rescued it from litter and debris, and received recognition for our work. One of our more successful civic efforts, it proves freethinkers can also serve the community.
 
As usual, the stalwart activity captain will provide all safety equipment, including comfortable, natty hard-hats and gloves, stylish safety vests, collection bags, and handy trash pickers. The cleanup takes a scant two hours. Please dress for the season. It may be a good idea to bring a backpack or fanny-pack to carry 3 or 4 trash bags.

To get there, travel north from Sacramento on I-5, past the old Sleeptrain Arena. Take the "Highway 99 - Yuba City, Marysville" exit. Exit at Elkhorn Boulevard less than a mile north. Turn left, cross the overpass. Park in the park-&-ride lot if possible, or somewhere near it.
 
Location :  Near W. Elkhorn Blvd & Hwy 99, see map.
Contact :  916-447-2169 (Don Knutson), or see Contact Page
In case of rain, excessive mud, rapture or locust plague, the Cleanup will be rescheduled. If unsure, call the Activity Captain (Don).
