Adopt-A-Spot Program


Translate This Page


Adopt-A-Spot is for groups of all ages and sizes!

Adopt-A-Spot is for schools, businesses, civic groups, churches or families who want to maintain a particular area. It provides an opportunity for groups of any size to regularly volunteer and set their own schedule. 

Cleanups offer participants the chance to explore details of the urban environment that often go unnoticed. Cities are part of our ecosystems and beautification projects help to solidify understanding of these complex relationships. The diverse cultural, economic and social environment of Denver provides occasion to develop personal knowledge of and explore the opportunities and challenges facing urban communities. Joining in organized cleanups also presents the chance for positive interaction with diverse peoples from Denver’s neighborhoods.

Adopt-A-Spot offers a means and the support for you to make your community a better place to live and play. Click here to view the program guidelines for the Adopt-A-Spot Program.
