Adopt A Greenway

This program provides an exciting opportunity to create community ownership and pride in our Midtown Greenway. The Midtown Greenway Coalition believes in a safe, clean, green Greenway and knows that it will only happen through participation of groups like yours!

Adopt A Greenway

Who: Community groups, schools, businesses, churches, and other volunteering groups.

When: Participating groups are responsible for two cleanups per year over a two-year period. Cleanup times will be set by the adopting party and should be reported to the Midtown Greenway Coalition so we can assist you by providing supplies and arranging for trash removal.

Where: Adopters are responsible for a four-block section of the Greenway, chosen by the adopter.

How will you benefit from becoming an adopter?

  • Your organization's contribution will be recognized in our quarterly newsletter, on our website, and on an attractive sign along your section of the Greenway.
  • You'll also be providing a fun employee team building activity and building pride in helping the Greenway and our community.

K-12 schools/social/religions organizations/Non-profits: $300-499
