Become one of many volunteers that help keep our designated roadways clean throughout the year and continue to promote community awareness and pride.
Keep Lee County Beautiful, Inc. has adopted Daniels Road, in Fort Myers, from Freshman to Danley as part of it’s continuing effort to promote community awareness and pride. Many volunteers help to keep our designated roadways clean throughout the year.
If you or your organization would like to help us with a roadside cleanup please call the office at 239-533-9400.
This program is a great opportunity for individuals, groups and corporations to give back to their communities in a highly visible way. Through this free program, participants will adopt a stretch of Lee County shoreline and receive the training and materials necessary to host their own cleanups. Adoptions greatly enhance the appearance of our communities and go a long way in reducing litter and debris from entering our waterways and polluting the natural habitats of our native wildlife.

Community Improvement Projects
KLCB engages residents to be a part of our community improvement initiatives to create positive change and a lasting impact within our local communities. We work with community leaders and interested parties (churches/schools/businesses, etc.) to organize projects throughout Lee County. These community projects can include cleanups, Florida native species plantings and gardens, tree plantings, invasive species removals, and mulching. As these events are scheduled, they are added to our Events Calendar. If you are interested in hosting a service project for your organization, school, company, etc., please complete our Community Project Inquiry Form.

Adopt-A-Highway - Drive It Home
Litter diminishes the aesthetics of the streets, roads, and highways throughout the state of Florida. It is distracting to the public, and can adversely affect the safety of driver, pedestrians, and bicyclists. Litter is often washed by rain into rivers, lakes, and other bodies of water, and can cause clogs in storm water drainage systems.

Adopt-A-Spot is a cooperative partnership between the public/private sector and Lee County. It is a litter abatement and beautification program that provides community groups* tools and supplies to “adopt” and improve the appearance of specific locations in their community. Participants agree to perform four cleanups a year to remove litter and debris. Adoptions greatly enhance the appearance of our community and go a long way to reducing the debris from entering our waterways and polluting the natural habitats of our native wildlife.
*A group is defined as a business, a public or private school, or a civic, fraternal, community or religious organization
