At the start of the 2019 year the City of Tybee Island launched the Adopt-an-Area Program, similar to Adopt-a-Highway, but instead volunteers adopt an area on Tybee Island. Adoptable areas could be a beach, beach crossover, marsh, park, or any other area on the island. The City hopes to keep all types of areas clean and would like any group, organization, or individual that wants to help keep Tybee clean to participate!
Participants in the Adopt-an-Area Program make a monthly commitment to clean up their adopted area at least once a month and a complete a Pickup Report after every pick-up. Even though the program started in January of 2019 any participant is able to join at any time throughout the year committing to the monthly pickups for the months remaining in that year. 

If you would like to participate in the Adopt-A Program the four forms need to be read over, completing and returning two of the forms, the Participant/Volunteer Waiver and the Annual Agreement. Please see each of the forms listed to the right.
