Plumas Audubon Society has supported the Caltrans Adopt-a-Highway program for many years and adopted a stretch of Highway 89 from the Highway 70 Junction (Greenville Wye) to Indian Falls. The group typically conducts two to four highway clean ups per year.

“We have had a relatively small crew of dedicated volunteers who have maintained this section of highway to keep it litter free and to protect Indian Creek from pollution,” said member Faith Strailey. “We are seeking the help of our members to bring our stretch of Highway 89 back into good shape. This year’s first clean-up is scheduled in conjunction with Earth Day weekend.”

She encourages members to join Plumas Audubon at the Greenville Wye at 9 a.m. on  Sunday, April 23 for a safety briefing. Trash bags and all necessary gear will be provided. Bring water, lunch, closed-toed shoes, and your enthusiasm!
