Whitby Area Scouting's Adopted Road and Adopted Trail
In the spring of 1999, Whitby Area Scouts adopted Durham Region
Highway 12 from Rossland Road to Taunton Road. As the
sponsors of this section of road our name has been placed on signs
erected by the Region of Durham, serving as a visible reminder of
Scouting's contribution to life in our community. We clean up the garbage
along the sides of the road twice a year, in November and April. Venturers,
Rovers, and Scouts aged 12 and over are responsible for this road cleanup.
In the spring of 1999, Whitby Area Scouts adopted the Waterfront
Trail from and including Intrepid Park westwards to Ronald Deeth
Park south of Co-Steel Lasco. Adopt-a-Park signs have been placed
by the Town of Whitby at each entry to the trail, indicating the
Scouts' adoption of this section of the trail, and reminding the
public of our commitment to the environment. We clean this section
of trail semi-annually, in November and April. All youth members
from Beavers though to the oldest sections are involved in this cleanup.

Results of the first trail cleanup.
Our first cleanup was held on Nov. 6, 1999. There was almost more garbage on the roadsides than we could handle, but trail users seem to be relatively clean, as anyone would hope.
