Keeping Estero Looking Beautiful. Engaged Volunteers Make a Difference!

The weekend before Christmas, the Engage Estero’s Adopt a Highway Program volunteers collected 780 pounds of bagged litter and miscellaneous items such as wood, metal, and plastic parts. The Florida Department of Transportation established the program, and our efforts helped clean Hwy 41 between the Vines entrance (Breckenridge Road) north of Walmart and south of Coconut Road.

The volunteers represented Rapallo, Pelican Sound, Bella Terra, Copperleaf, The Vines, Belle Lago, Stoneybrook, Riverwoods, Grandezza, and Meadows of Estero. We extend our appreciation for their dedication to keeping Estero looking its best.

this season. Everyone involved in the clean-up appreciates their ongoing support.

Engage Estero also thanks all of our neighbors in the community, especially those in Pebble Pointe and Breckinridge, who regularly pick up litter on their walks in Estero. Others participating in the Adopt a Road program through Lee County or the Village include GS Team, RMS, Heatherstone at Rookery Pointe, Genova, Country Creek, Cascades, Mirasol, and Lighthouse Bay.

If you want to help clean up our roads to make a difference in our environment, please email Julie Yellig at  Julie will put you in touch with local groups that help clear up our road network and explain how to help with the Hwy 41 Adopt a Highway program.
