START has adopted a stretch Highway along Highway 170 at the Delmar Blvd. on-ramp!  



START volunteers are needed to help pick up trash along "our" piece of the highway.  We will coordinate four cleanup events a year over the next three years. Please consider helping us help the environment while getting the word out about START!  Please let us know if you would like to help with this.  Many thanks to Bill Ash for taking the lead on this project and making it happen! 

We will always meet up at the following location....

170 to Delmar west, parking lot on the right(north)

  • Next Highway Clean-up... in June tbd
