On Sunday, May 15, the Steele County Humane Society will clean-up their designated Adopt-a-Highway, rain or shine, according to a press release.

The day begins with a meeting at the Owatonna Business Incubator, 1065 S.W. 24th Ave., at 8:30AM. The meeting will include a safety video. The humane society will bring the doughnuts, and they suggest you bring a couple of beverages, especially water.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation will provide safety vests and garbage bags. The suggested attire includes:

  • long pants
  • heavy shoes or boots
  • gloves
  • hats
  • sunglasses/sunscreen
  • a grabber, so you will have less bending

A reminder that there will be walking in long, heavy grass and hilly areas. The clean-up will take a couple of hours, the more help the faster it will go.

The SCHS will transport participants to and from the area using their van.

If you would like to sign up or have any questions, call (507) 451-4512.
