Adopt-A-Road ProgramGresham Track Gives Back clears trash from Main Avenue.

Adopt-A-Road is an anti-litter campaign. Make a positive impact on the appearances of Gresham's roads and our community by adopting a segment of roadway and helping keep it clean.

Time Commitment

  • There are no costs or fees to the participants.
  • The segment of roadway may be of the volunteers’ choosing or selected by the City.
  • Assigned road segments will vary in length, depending on the size of the volunteer group and the volume of anticipated litter.
  • The adopting party may be a club, a business, a group of concerned citizens or an individual.
  • Participants must be at least 13 years of age and in good health.
  • There must be one adult at the work site for participants between the ages of 13 and 18.
