What is it?

The Unified Government of Wyandotte County & Kansas City, Kansas’s Adopt-A-Spot program is a SOAR initiative designed for civic-minded groups or businesses with an interest in keeping our city litter-free. 


How does it work?

What's adoptable?
The Unified Government has identified numerous streets, parks, and Land Bank properties in KCK as adoptable. Keep an eye out for adoptable spots in Bonner Springs and Edwardsville soon!

Who can adopt a spot?
Anyone can Adopt-A-Spot, but there's a catch, right? Yes - kind of. For safety reasons, volunteers participating in clean up efforts on adopted portions of street must be over 14 years of age. Otherwise, Adopt-A-Spot is open to everyone! This includes families, youth organizations, civic groups, non-profit organizations, churches, schools, social organizations, neighborhood groups, service organizations, retiree organizations, city, county or state agencies, and more. 


Get Involved

Pick Your Spot
Most groups pick a location close to home. You can do the same, or your can adopt a location you're particularly fond of. Check out the full list of adoptable spots here. Email us at adoptaspot@wycokck.org if you know you're interested in a particular spot. 

Do Some Boring Paperwork
Hey, paperwork isn't always a bad thing. In this case, we just need to know who your group is so we can have a sign with your name printed on it. Eventually we will have all of the paperwork available on this web page and in-person at the Parks and Recreation office. We aren't quite ready just yet, though!

Start Making a Difference
Sponsors need to keep their portion of park, street, or land bank property litter-free by hosting at least 3 clean up events over a two-year period. Get a sign at your adopted spot with your group's name on it in return!
