Fall Adopt-A-Road Cleanup Party!

    

Join us Saturday November 15, 2014, at 10AM to help make Washington County a little bit cleaner.

You bring your family & friends (age 12 and above please) wear solid shoes or boots, work gloves and weather-appropriate clothing for a couple hours out in the elements.
(CLICK HERE for a map of the cleanup area.)

The Oregon Heritage Apple Farm is at 22801 Southwest Scholls Ferry Road, park in the lot to the west of the red barn and twin silos. Following the Cleanup we will adjourn as is our custom to a nearby public house for refreshing beverages and food. 
To participate please contact Cleanup Czar Luis Nava (
