Members of Put-in-Bay School’s National Honor Society have teamed up with the school’s Environmental Club for a joint service project. The NHS students have partnered with the Ohio Department of Transportation’s Adopt-a-Highway program to maintain and clean State Route 537 on South Bass Island.
Both NHS students and the school’s Environmental Club will work to complete at least four clean-ups per year. The community has also been invited to join the clean-ups that are scheduled throughout the year. Participants must be at least 12 years old. Anyone who is between the ages of 12-17 will require a parent-release form, which will be available at the clean-up site.
The first clean-up took place at East Point last week. with 70 pounds of trash picked up in only one hour. The Put-in-Bay student program looks forward to Adopt-A-Highway signs being added to the roadway this spring.
