Updates on Issues of Impact

Engage Estero believes the best way to get a community involved is to make sure they are aware of the issues impacting their future, and know how to impact those decisions before they are made. We conduct and publish original research and articles aimed at getting residents Engaged.

Another Stellar Volunteer Clean-Up Event Along Hwy 41 In Estero!

In January, Engage Estero’s Adopt a Highway team collected 560 pounds of bagged litter, along with various items of wood, metal and assorted plastic parts. That amounts to 1.6 tons which has been collected from Hwy 41 (41 between the Vines entrance (Breckenridge Road) north of Walmart and south of Coconut Road) since the end of last season by our volunteers. This is now Engage Estero’s 4th season working with FDOT clearing litter from Hwy 41. The work continues to make an important contribution to keeping Estero looking its best.

Volunteers this month represented Rapallo, Pelican Sound, Bella Terra, Copperleaf, The Vines, Belle Lago, Riverwoods, Grandezza, and Meadows of Estero.

Marathon/Dos Amigos Authentic Mexican Grill is again providing water and ice this season. Engage Estero’s management is extremely appreciative of their continued support for the volunteers who help with the litter collection along Hwy 41.

We are also grateful to all Estero’s residents who take a bag on their walks and pick up litter in the community, as well as those who participate in one of the area’s Adopt a Road programs. You continue to make a difference to our community.

If you would like to lend a hand in helping to keep Estero looking its best, please contact Julie Yellig at ecclhwy41@gmail.com  for information about volunteering for an Adopt a Road or Highway program.

Thanks to everyone for being an important part of our vision for a beautiful and environmentally healthy Estero.
