Dear Outwoods members, the board applied to adopt a stretch of highway as part of the Adopt-A-Highway program.
The AAH program from MNDot has accepted the application and granted us the stretch of Highway 100 between 50th and 36th Ave northbound in Edina, MN, which is about 1.8 miles.
This is a very exciting moment for Outwoods. We are contributing to the community in which we live, work, and play. Which aligns with one of the core values of Outwoods of protecting and conserving the natural environment.
The details of the program are simple; we have to clean the highway at least twice a year for a two year period. The program is designed to keep roadsides clean.
The State (MNDot) provides a training video, vests, trash bags, and pick up for the days of the clean up. The State also provides a free recognition sign, the sign will read:
OUTWOODS OUTDOOR RECREATIONAL CLUB
