UMPA Adopt A Highway Cleanup will take place, at our new location, Sat. October 8th, 2011, 1pm on I 35E, Hugo, MN. This may sound remote, but it is 23 miles from the SPC, about the same distance as our previous location near Anoka. This site is a beautiful, natural area of farm fields, wetlands, and some wooded areas. If you can only spend a few hours, come early to get your supplies! With 20 people, four teams of five, we should be able to complete the spring cleanup in just a few hours! If your group wants to participate as a team, Please CONTACT UMPA.
* RAIN DATE: Sunday Oct. 9th 1pm
UMPA has contracted with the Minnesota Highway Department to maintain litter cleanup on a 2.0 mile section of I35E, just south of the junction with I35W near Hugo. This is a highly traveled four lane divided stretch between Anoka County Road 14 (Main St Hugo) and 80th ST E. * note this exit is under construction renovation). It can be reached heading north on either 35W or E, exiting Centerville Main and heading East(from I35W) or Exiting Hugo Main, (Co Road 14, I 35E, and finding the Central Bank, on the NW corner of that exit.
We will be gathering at The Central Bank, at 10 am ...hit the Highway by 1pm click the link to explore a satelitte photo of the area.
We will split into teams and carpool some to 80th St., and any who want to offer off Highway support will prepare sandwiches and deliver water UMPA will provide. We will have blaze green safety vests, garbage bags, and instructions!
