Keeping Coeur d'Alene Beautiful!

Adopt A Road In Coeur d'Alene

Yes, we have joined the ranks of the trained volunteer's to keep our beautiful country road free of litter!

We attended a class provided by the Post Falls Highway District, and learned all about what to do & what not to do! As a result we've adopted a 2 mile stretch of road that extends East and West of our B&B.

After the training class, we received vests, bags and signs to put up next time we clean our area. The really nice thing about working with the Highway District is the fact that they will come by to pick up all the bags that you fill along the roadway after a clean up.

We will schedule a clean up with any volunteers from the neighborhood on Saturday, March 20, 2010, at 11:00. Anyone interested in helping can meet here, and we will have vests and garbage bags for all, just bring your own gloves and pickers. You will have to sign release forms which we will have available that day too.

Hope to see you on the 20th.

Things To Consider:
  • Wear appropriate clothing
  • Bring a bottle of water
  • Protective gloves are a must
  • Provide your own picker (hardware store or simply a dowel with a nail in one end)
  • Perhaps you will consider volunteering for an area where you live

This is a great idea. I want to get my kids involved. North Idaho is so beautiful and we should do what we can to keep it that way. Thanks for being a good example.
