Adopt-A-Highway

The Friends of Sleeping Bear Dunes has agreed with Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) to “Adopt” a portion of M-109 from Glen Haven to a little south of the Dune Climb. This is a section of highway used by about 1.8 million people each year who visit Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. While our visitors are usually very good about not littering, there is always some trash that finds its way to the roadside. As part of our mission to care for the resources within the Park, we will do our best to keep this road free of litter.

Highway Clean-up Crew

MDOT organizes volunteer groups like ours to clean the roadways 3 times each year – Spring, Summer, and Fall. Here are the dates for 2019:

May 4-12, 2019
July 13-21, 2019
September 21-29, 2019

Peter Van Nort (Township Supervisor for Glen Arbor) coordinates our Adopt-a-Highway Program.
