Pounds of Trash Removed
About Adopt A Forest
The Adopt A Forest program through the Michigan Coalition for Clean Forests and the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, works towards enhancing the enjoyment of public forest land by eliminating illegal dumping and to increase awareness of recycling opportunities for waste materials found.
The Adopt-a-Forest program goals are:
- Prevention through education
- Law enforcement
- Improved legal recycling and disposal options.
The program encourages volunteers–the program’s backbone–to clean up existing trash and to function as an “army” of educators.
Over 2 million acres of public lands in Michigan have been cleaned by volunteers.
Removal of trash including:
