Adopt a Park, Trail or Roadway

Adopt-A-Park

Adopt a greenspace within a cul de sac, public utility lane, or in a park and help beautify your neighbourhood for all to enjoy! The Adopt-A-Park program requires a commitment of regular, general maintenance in the adopted area from May to September. Working collaboratively with the RMWB Parks division, volunteers are encouraged to plant a garden, pick up litter, pull out weeds, and/or install ornamental decorations.

Additional horticultural support can also be provided to help beautify the adopted the area.

For more information on the Adopt-A-Park program, email contact.parks@rmwb.ca or call 780-799-5832.

2018 Adopt-A-Trail/ Adopt-A-Roadway Volunteer Opportunity

Make a difference and volunteer to help keep Wood Buffalo beautiful!

By adopting a trail or roadway you are helping to improve the appearance of your community and play a part in creating a sense of home! Together with your family, friends, neighbours, and/or colleagues you help to keep our communities looking clean and cared for.

The Adopt-A-Trail/Adopt-A-Roadway program is an opportunity for residents to improve sections of trails and/or greenspaces along local roadways. Volunteers show community pride by maintaining the tidiness of these adopted areas. For all volunteers/groups that complete the program, a sign will be posted in the vicinity of the adopted area which recognizes the volunteers/group.

Your valuable assistance as a volunteer contributes to the health and safety of our trails and roadways within the region.

Adopted trails or greenspaces along roadways must be between a half kilometre and three kilometres in length and located on municipal property. The program requires a minimum commitment of four litter cleanup sessions between May and October. Each litter cleanup must be reported by emailing beautification@rmwb.ca or calling 780-743-7966 indicating the number of bags collected, the location of the bags for pickup (or let us know the number of bags you disposed of yourselves), as well as the location of heavy or sharp items for pickup. Graffiti wipes are also available for graffiti removal.

If you come across illegal dumping sites or a homeless camp, report it to Bylaw Services by calling 780-762-5858. If you find graffiti, report it through PULSE Online or by calling PULSE: Wood Buffalo at 780-743-7000.
