Dumpsite MapOur goals are to enhance enjoyment of public forest land by eliminating illegal dumping and to increase awareness of recycling opportunities for waste materials found.

The Adopt-a-Forest program goals are:
  • Prevention through education
  • Law enforcement
  • Improved legal recycling and disposal options.

The program encourages volunteers--the programís backbone--to clean up existing trash and to function as an "army" of educators.

All State land volunteers must sign a Waiver of Liability
