Adopt-A-Road/Adopt-A-Trail Program

The Adopt-A-Road/Adopt-A-Trail program helps to organize volunteers to assist the City with keeping Kamloops' roadsides and nature trails clear of litter. The program, which has been in existence since the 1980s, currently has almost 100 groups and individuals associated with 140 kms of city roads. Volunteers help maintain the beautiful appearance of our community and our environment. New in 2018 is the Adopt-A-Trail program, which allows groups or individuals to help keep the City's trail network litter free. 

If you are interested in adopting a section of a City street or a trail, please first review the Adopt-A-Road/Trail contract and then contact us.
