Big Bear, Ca, April 25, 2011, 3:00pm – Cal Trans is looking for volunteers to adopt portions of Highway 38 and 18. Cal Trans needs help in the fight against litter, and the Adopt–a-Highway program, which was established in 1989, is the best way to help in that fight. According to Cal Trans, the Adopt-A-Highway program provides an avenue for individuals, organizations, local agencies, and businesses to make a difference in their community by maintaining up to two-mile sections of roadside within California’s State Highway System. In return, volunteers organizations or individuals will get a freeway sign recognizing their contribution in their adopted portion of the highway. Cal Trans also states that this program builds community pride in addition to aesthetic benefits of cleaner and more beautiful roadsides. The program is free as program fees are exempt, and Cal Trans supplies volunteers with safety gear, and litterbags and pickers. For more information or to Adopt-a-Highway, call (909) 888-5394.
