Northwood Adopt-A-Spot Program

Adopt-A-Spot Program gives citizens, non-profits, businesses, and other organizations the opportunity to show pride in our community.

Enhance the environment and beautify Northwood beaches, parks and roadsides!

This program offers groups a project that gives its members the satisfaction of making a contribution to their community. At the same time, it generates publicity for the group’s service activities.

Adopt-a-Spot volunteers will spruce up designated areas throughout the town by removing litter and debris, controlling weeds, planting trees and other plants, mulching, and identifying and eliminating hazards.

For more information on where to adopt and how to apply please contact Scott Blewitt, Recreation Director at sblewitt@northwoodnh.org
