Celebrate Earth Day, Adopt a County Road

Adopt a Road to Help Improve the Environment and Keep Our Community Clean

In honor of Earth Day, April 22, join Leon County in protecting and enhancing our environment by adopting a County road through our Adopt-A-Road Program. To start making a difference, visit

More than one hundred miles of road are available for adoption in Leon County, providing the perfect opportunity for residents or local organizations to make a difference in their communities.  By adopting a County road through the Adopt-A-Road Program, residents can adopt a section of a County road for two years and team up with Leon County in a mission to rid County roads of litter—make scheduled clean-ups a highlight of your civic involvement. 

Participating in the Adopt-a-Road program allows residents and local groups to contribute to their community's quality of life and cleanliness. Leon County supports these efforts by providing necessary equipment for the clean-up events, such as safety vests, signage, and trash bags. The county also facilitates safety training and coordinates the disposal of collected litter at designated drop-off points.

The Adopt-A-Road Program is one of the many ways Leon County works to protect our local ecosystem and value our environment as a vital component of our community’s health. Through a related initiative, the County’s Adopt-A-Tree Program has planted more than 5,000 trees in unincorporated Leon County at no charge. Also, in recognition of Florida’s Arbor Day, Leon County hosted the annual Arbor Day Tree Planting event alongside community volunteers to plant hundreds of trees throughout the County.

Celebrate Earth Day by adopting a County road and help keep Leon County clean and beautiful. To learn more about the County’s Adopt-A-Road Program, visit
