Through the Adopt-a-Greenway program, the City of College Station in partnership with Keep Brazos Beautiful, provides an opportunity for residents and businesses to play an active and ongoing role in cleaning and beautifying our open spaces, creeks and multi-use paths/trails.What do I have to do?
- Adopt an area within the City of College Station for a minimum of two years. The city will provide a list of locations to choose from.
- Each year, commit to cleaning at least two times – once in the fall and once in the spring may be ideal. You can clean your area more often, if so desired.
Who can participate?
Anyone who is interested in keeping our community clean and looking beautiful! This includes: individuals, families, student organizations, youth and church groups, scout groups, civic organizations, businesses, neighborhood associations or any combination of the above.
What are the benefits?
By participating, you not only gain the personal reward of knowing that you made a difference in how your community looks, but you also receive recognition through a sign(s) at your adopted area, on our website and a certificate thanking you for your service.
