Doing Our Part: We “Adopt a Highway”

Thanks to team effort, our section  is now clean!

All year long we work with families, community members and people from all walks of life to take care of the land and protect the vast beauty and unique character of the Idaho and Montana North Country.

We want to do our part locally too, and last week we had our inaugural clean-up day. Thanks to a hardy team of volunteers we were able to clean up “our section.”

The 2-mile section, including the stretch with the Pack River Bridge (mile post 37 to 39 to be exact) had obviously not been cared for in a few years as our hardy crew filled over 12 large garbage bags.

Did I mention it was cold, too? Temperatures topped out at around 29 degrees but we still had fun.

A special thanks to Celeste for organizing the day, and to Irv, Michelle, Kerry, Celeste, Mary & John who braved the cold in partnership with the land trust staff. Because of your spirt and dedication we can all take pride in knowing that our section of Highway 200 is clean.

We look forward doing it again in the spring with a great team.  Each time we make strides in making our community a bit better to live, work and play.
