Adopt-A-Spot is for schools, businesses, civic groups, churches or families who want to maintain a particular area. It provides an opportunity for groups of any size to regularly volunteer and set their own schedule.

Adopt-A-Spot offers a means and the support for you to make your community a better place to live and play. Click here to review Adopt-A-Spot Program Guidelines.


Educational Value


  • Cleanups offer participants the chance to explore details of the urban environment that often go unnoticed.
  • Cities are part of our ecosystems and beautification projects help to solidify understanding of these complex relationships.
  • The diverse cultural, economic and social environment of Denver provides occasion to develop personal knowledge of and explore the opportunities and challenges facing urban communities.
  • Joining in organized cleanups also presents the chance for positive interaction with diverse peoples from Denver’s neighborhoods.

Sponsor's Responsibilities


  • Maintains a stretch of road, alleys or open areas (public right-of-way) for one year.
  • Provides people-power to pick up litter, remove illegal signs and report graffiti.
  • Agrees to clean your Spot through the year.
