Novemebr 2023 Volunteers for Adopt a Highway

Over this last weekend, Engage Estero’s Adopt a Highway Program volunteers collected 780 pounds of bagged litter and numerous wood/metal/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.

Estero is one of the most attractive municipalities in Lee County, and the efforts to keep it that way are immeasurably appreciated. Many enthusiastic Estero residents contribute to ensuring our community looks its best for residents and visitors alike. This month, volunteers represented Rapallo, Pelican Sound, Bella Terra, Copperleaf, The Vines, Belle Lago, and Meadows of Estero.

Engage Estero’s board of directors and management are grateful to all who help remove litter, including those supporting other Adopt a Road programs. They are essential to our vision for a beautiful and environmentally healthy Estero.

Marathon/Dos Amigos Authentic Mexican Grill continues to provide water and ice to volunteers again this season. Everyone involved in the clean-up appreciates their ongoing support.

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.

Engage Estero is an all-volunteer, nonpolitical, nonprofit Community Engagement Association. We exist to inform citizens of significant community issues and encourage citizen engagement to impact the quality of life in greater Estero favorably.
