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.

This program reduces litter along roadways and park systems

Builds community support for anti-litter and roadway beautification programs

Educates the public about proper disposal of litter

Enhances the environment and beautifies Northwood beaches, parks and roadsides

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.
