The Iowa Geocachers Organization has adopted this two mile section of highway for twice-per-year Adopt-A-Highway litter removal in the spirit of Geocaching.com’s mission of “Cache-In-Trash-Out” and we need your help!!
It's time for the fall version of trash pick up on this newly adopted section of highway in Clinton County by the Iowa Geocachers Organization. The time of this CITO is firm for two reasons - 1) The time required for this cleanup should be MUCH shorter than the spring version (which was well attended and VERY successful!!), and 2) if more than two hours is required, a second follow up/finish up will be scheduled. We all have things to do, people to see, and places to go. I wanted to make sure everyone knows the exact schedule for this event so your plans can be scheduled around this time frame.
The posted coordinates are where we will park and gather for a short safety and instructional meeting before we head out in teams to complete this community service. The parking location is on the north side of Highway 30 at Eastern Iowa Petro across from the entrance to the Equistar/Lyondell Chemical plant. Please come prepared with proper footwear for hiking, gloves, and any special ‘pickup’ tools that you prefer. There is NOT a nearby restroom, so plan accordingly. The Iowa DOT requires that everyone wears a safety vest which will be provided to you, so please post the number of people attending in your ‘will attend’ log so that enough vests are available for everyone participating. If time and logistics allow, a group picture will be taken and a quick door prize drawing will be held at the end of this event.
Look for a Meet and Greet event to be announced soon as a follow up to this event!!
The more, the merrier!! With enough participants we should be able to knock this out in less than the time allotted. Spread the word to your fellow cachers to come to Clinton for this community event!! If we get enough cachers involved, we will finish early and there will be some time left to cache a bit around the Clinton area before the post-CITO party (to be announced soon).
IGO … Do You?
