Adopt-a-Highway Cleanup
Saturday, Sep 16, 2023, 9am - 11am
Location:  Near West Elkhorn Blvd & Hwy 99, map at
Celebrate World Cleanup Day by helping to clear litter from our adopted portion of Highway 99, the two-mile stretch from Elkhorn Boulevard to Elverta Road. It's easy and fun.
Sacramento-area freethinkers adopted the stretch in July 1995. Since then 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.
So join us! 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. (And Cal-Trans is now paying a stipend for our work!)
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. 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.
Contact for details:  916-805-9337 (Don Knutson), or see Contact Page
In case of rain, fog, excessive mud, rapture or locust plague, the Cleanup will be rescheduled. If unsure, call the Activity Captain (Don).
