Eastern Sierra Land Trust to Host Highway 395 Cleanup – February 25, 2023

Eastern Sierra Land Trust will be hosting a Highway 395 cleanup event on
Saturday, February 25th from 10am – Noon. We need your help to keep
ESLT’s section of Hwy 395 beautiful and trash free.

The Caltrans Adopt-A-Highway Program provides an avenue for individuals,
organizations, or businesses to help maintain sections of roadside within
California’s State Highway System. The Adopt-A-Highway program, which
began in 1989, has been one of the truly successful government-public
partnerships of our time. More than 120,000 Californians have cleaned and
enhanced over 15,000 shoulder-miles of roadside.

ESLT is proud to have adopted a section of the highway 14 miles northwest
of Bishop. Please RSVP by contacting Harrison at [email protected].
Coffee and pastries will be provided. Please bring long pants, sturdy
footwear, and adequate clothing. There will be no restrooms immediately
available along the highway, so please plan accordingly. You can find more
information about this event at eslt.org/events.

Thank you to our supporters of Caltrans and Great Basin Bakery.

I cleaned an Adoptahighway section for many years. A lot of the bottles of pee were very large , and I believe that it was long-haul truck drivers who discarded them rather than tourists.

I’ve always thought and heard, some of that coming from the tourists themselves, laughing and saying how “nothings gonna slow them down” as they race the highway towards Mammoth Lakes…
