Michigan is in need of more Adopt-A-Highway groups along a 23 mile stretch of I-94 beginning at the Indiana state line. Groups already made their first trash pickup from April 22 through the 30th. Two more pickup dates are scheduled for July 8-16 and September 9-17. The Michigan Department of Transportation supllies groups with everything from safety videos and vests down to the trash bags. I took part a few times in the Adopt-A-Highway program with my accounting fraternity at Western Michigan University. We had a large group and it didn't take more than an hour or two to clean up our stretch of northbound 131. It was a lot of fun to work together and make Michigan look a little bit cleaner in the process. It was also amazing and sad to see the amount of trash dumped along a pretty short stretch of road.
