The Alouette River Management Society and the City of Pitt Meadows invite you to adopt a program in your neighbourhood!
What is the Adopt-a-Program?
The Pitt Meadows Adopt-a-Program is a volunteer based initiative that envisions a cleaner, healthier, litter-free City. The idea behind Adopt-a-Program is to encourage active community engagement and promote proper waste disposal while building neighbourhood relationships in pursuit of keeping Pitt Meadows beautiful!
Volunteer members of Adopt-a-Program commit to taking responsibility for the state of the City by ‘adopting’ an area in neighbourhhod. This involves collecting small amounts of litter on a monthly basis for one year in the designated area.
How does it work?
Adopt-A-Program involves collecting small amounts of litter on a monthly basis in your designated area. Associated with Adopt-A-Program are four adoption options, including Adopt-a-Block, Adopt-A-Stream, Adopt-A-Park, and Adopt-A-Trail. Once you register and adopt your area, you can sign-out equipment from the Alouette River Management Society, Rivers Heritage Centre (arrange in advance). You can keep the equipment for the duration of your commitment period. There is no set schedule – when you have a bit of free time, do a quick cleanup!
Adopt-A-Stream involves collecting litter as well as other stream activities, such as water quality testing and replacing invasive plants with native species. However, you must attain your Streamkeepers certification to engage in any stream activities besides basic litter pickup.
Who can participate?
Adopt-A-Program welcomes everyone! Students participate to gain volunteer hours to graduate, retired individuals join to stay active in their community, families adopt together as a fun, constructive activity – the possibilities are endless. Keeping our community tidy makes Pitt Meadows that much more beautiful to enjoy.
