Started in 2008, the Adopt-a-Pond/Road program offers an opportunity for UCF student organizations to gain community service hours by eliminating trash around campus roads and stormwater ponds. Each pond or road should be adopted by organizations that will commit to the project in a dependable manner, volunteering to clean up their adopted space twice a month. The adoptees will monitor and pick up any trash along the shoreline and the vicinity of the pond or road; however, entrance into the pond water or road is prohibited for safety.

After a full semester of consistent and recorded clean ups, the volunteer organization will have their name posted on a sign in the designated area to showcase their service. If the organization is no longer able to maintain a consistent schedule, the adopted area will be offered to another organization on the wait list.

If your group / organization is interested in adopting a pond or road, click the button below for the Adopt Application or contact nature@ucf.edu with any questions. Once the application is submitted, a representative will follow up through the email address provided in the application.
