Adopt A Highway

YMCA volunteers provided valuable assistance with policies, programs, and activities. Each of our volunteers’ selflessness and willingness to roll up their sleeves to give back helps improve the lives of thousands of kids, adults, and families.

Volunteers assist with the Adopt A Highway project along Highway 101 at Milepost 261.25 and 263.5 with Olympic Peninsula YMCA staff 4 times a year. Volunteers will receive bags, reflective vests, gloves and directions to beautify along the road with the YMCA by picking up trash, recycling and any debris along the road and leaving it for Clallam County to pick up at a later date. 

Must be 18 years of age or older to volunteer for Adopt A Highway. 

Adopt a Highway on Saturday, April 18, 2020 has been postponed at this time due to COVID-19 facility closures. When we are able to re-open we will be sure to update you on when our next Adopt a Highway event will be in the future. We thank you for your patience. 

Would you like to join us in keeping our peninsula beautiful?
