Ascension Lutheran Church partners with the Ministry of Transportation (MOT)

to adopt four kilometers of Highway 3A just outside of Nelson. 

Three times a year, Ascension Lutheran members and friends walk this stretch and do litter removal and invasive weed spotting. We pick up up between thirty and fifty bags of litter each time we go out. 

Our service is definitely appreciated by the Nelson community, as we regularly get thanks in the local paper. Many people honk their horns as they pass us while we are working.

It is a great to be part of supporting the natural beauty of our area that we have been blessed with.

For more information about this program please visit the MOT Adopt-a-Highway page

Our group did another amazing clean-up this spring, keeping the entrance to Nelson as beautiful as the Kootenays always should be.

Please tarp your loads on the way to the transit station or when moving house.
