The Adopt-a-Spot Program is designed to enable community groups, businesses, churches, schools, and other organizations to play an active role in keeping public spaces clean and beautiful, while allowing them to set their own schedule. It is also a great opportunity for students to obtain community service hours.
We are looking for volunteers who would like to adopt a spot such as:
Creek trails (with SCVWD approval)
City-owned lots or alleys
Storm drain inlets
Gutter lines & sidewalks
Bus stops (with VTA approval)
Why adopt a spot?

Find out how rewarding caring for your community can be!
