The choice is an easy one: Adopt-A-Highway.

Storm Drain Marking Program – After rainfall, stormwater flows over land or impervious surfaces, such as paved streets, parking lots, and building dirt/sediment. Stormwater runoff is directed to local waterways, that without treatment, can harm our rivers, streams, lakes, and coastal waters. Help protect our city’s waterways from pollution by placing storm drain markers in your neighborhood!
Watershed Cleanups – For more than six decades, Keep America Beautiful has served as our country’s nonprofit steward of litter prevention. Litter is more than just a blight on our landscape. Litter is costly to clean up, impacts our quality of life and economic development, and eventually ends up in our waterways and oceans. Do your part to Keep Winter Park Beautiful & Sustainable, sign up for one of our upcoming watershed cleanups today!
