Highway Cleanup

11/11/2022 @ 9:00 am to 1:00 pm

Otsego County Conservation Association is seeking volunteers to help clean up a portion of State Route 80 in Springfield on Friday, November 11, beginning at 9 a.m. 

OCCA adopted the portion of the road, which spans the towns of Springfield and Ostego, in 2013 as part of New York State’s Adopt-A-Highway Program. Volunteers will meet at OCCA’s office at Mohican Farm, on the corner of Route 80 and Allen Lake Road, and will collect trash along a two-mile stretch. We hope to have between eight and ten volunteers, and we should plan to work for three hours.  

 The New York State Department of Transportation, which administers the statewide program, provides trash bags and safety equipment. OCCA will provide water and light refreshments. Participants should wear long pants and sleeves. 

If you want to register or ask questions about the clean-up event, you can contact education specialist Shelby MacLeish at education@occainfo.org. The clean-up event is open to those ages 12 and up.
