Adopt a Spot

You are encouraged to take part in this exciting and innovative program by adopting a portion of your neighborhood. From business districts to your own block, beautification and maintenance of your own spot can only benefit your community. 

Adopting is Easy!

Who: Any individual, organized group, or business may participate in the Adopt-a-Spot Program.  

What: Adopt-a-Spot is a volunteer-based program for interested citizens to show their pride and support for their community in helping maintain the cleanliness and safety of city parks and trails.

Why: To encourage residents and businesses in our community to initiate beautification and litter prevention projects in neighborhoods to ensure a better quality of life.

 When: A minimum once a month cleanup of the entire adopted “spot” designated by the participating individual or organization. The individual or group is required to adopt for a one-year period. “Adopters” shall be required to pick-up litter if the appearance of the adopted section becomes objectionable. If Adopter desires to renew this agreement for the following year, written notification should be submitted to the KLCB Coordinator by the termination date of the current agreement year.  

Where: Adopt-a-Spot locations are city parks and trails. For a list of available locations please contact the KLCB coordinator at [email protected].  

How: Complete and return the Adopt-a-Spot agreement to the KLCB coordinator. 

Keep Las Cruces Beautiful will: 

• Publicly recognize each Adopting individual or group by way of an attractive sign installed within your adoptive “spot.” 

 • Provide garbage bags and other available supplies, as needed.
