This Green Team program allows the community to contribute to a beautiful, healthier, cleaner environment by adopting a mile, spot, or stream.

No one can do this alone! It takes all of us working together. The heart of Green Team is our volunteers, and this is one of several ways you can get involved to pick up litter and enhance our community.
