The mission of Keep Boone County Beautiful is to protect and preserve the beauty and quality of life through partnerships between citizens, business, neighborhoods and government and to continue to foster PRIDE in our County’s environment.

There are three ongoing “adoption” programs for litter control and cleanup available in Boone County (in addition to the Iowa Department of Transportation’s Adopt-A-Highway program .)  Keep Boone County Beautiful provides volunteer training, signage and litter collection supplies for all three programs:
Adopt a road whalen road sign
Adopt-A-County Road: There are a number of miles of Boone County Secondary Roads available for adoption. For volunteer safety concerns, these are restricted to paved roads with a minimum of a 6’ wide shoulder. Click here for a map that shows eligible roads for adoption. Before completing an adoption form, please contact Lois Powers at 515.433.0591 or by email at to confirm road section availability.

Adopt Your Favorite Place: In addition to County roadways, other County-controlled locations are available for adoption as well. These include boat ramps, county parks and recreation areas, and other locations. Please contact Lois Powers at 515.433.0591 or by email at to discuss a favorite place you would like to consider adopting.

Adopt-A-City Street: Some communities in Boone County have partnered with Keep Boone County Beautiful to offer an “Adopt-A-City Street Program.” These programs are managed by the respective communities. KBCB provides volunteer training, signage and litter collection supplies. Currently, the cities of Boone and Madrid participate in this program. You can contact the City administrator in these cities to discuss the program.
