To help combat desert dumping, Bureau of Land Management Southern Nevada District is expanding its Adopt-a-Spot Anti-Litter program.
Modeled after the successful Adopt-a-Highway Program, Adopt-a-Spot offers volunteers an opportunity to make a difference on their public land by selecting an area that is important to them, removing litter and keeping it free from desert dumping.
Currently, almost 350 sites have been reported to contain litter. Within the more than three million acres of public land, adoptable locations are available right by where you live, work or play in Southern Nevada. If the location you select is not on public land, we will put you in touch with the right organization.
Adopt-a-Spot locations on public land will receive an initial assessment, checklist, bags, assistance with larger event and a sign commemorating your service.
Groups who volunteer to Adopt-a-Spot must agree to a six month commitment, clean-up the site once a month or more and ask each volunteer to sign an agreement.
