Adopt and Beautify
Volunteers expand upon PennDOT's planting efforts to cultivate approved plantings and conduct litter pick up along our state-maintained roadways under a two-year commitment. In return, PennDOT places a sign recognizing the group for its efforts. Since interchange areas and traffic islands are also available for adoption, this is a wonderful way to say "Welcome to Pennsylvania and our community."
