Help Us Clean the Highway?

adopt a highway

Douglas UCC’s Creation Justice team invites any of our neighbors who would like to help clean up the stretch of US196 that hugs our cities and township to join us in our Adopt-A-Highway project to clear the trash along the highway.

We have scheduled two cleanup periods for the spring, July 13 from 9am to noon and July 16 from 4 to 7pm.

You will review a training video, receive safety vests and cleaning equipment. Bring gloves and dress to protect yourself from sun and bugs. For each event, we ask that you follow one of the links below to grab a free “ticket,” so that we may get a good count of volunteers and easily communicate with you in case of rescheduling for weather.

Honor Thy Mother (Earth)

Our Earth Day celebrations began with a few sore backs and shoulders after dozens of our members showed up to clean 4 miles of highway around our town. See the article all about it, featured on the National UCC newsletter, and more great team photos on the DUCC Instagram account. Special shoutout to Pastor Sal for winning the Michigan Interfaith Power and Light sermon contest for his beautiful Earth Day Message. Stay tuned for announcements of our spring programs. Great work ahead!
