Adopt-a-Spot Program

 

Our Adopt-a-Spot program offers great opportunities for businesses, neighborhood groups, faith groups and civic organizations who want to have a positive impact on their community. This program helps to enhance community pride by maintaining clean and attractive parks, green spaces, nature trails and roadways for residents and visitors to enjoy.

An adoption is an agreement with the city for a minimum of two years, so make sure your group wants to make a long-term commitment before beginning the adoption process.

If you would like to adopt a park, street or median, please contact Keep Fort Worth Beautiful at KFWB@fortworthtexas.gov  or by phone at 817-392-2046 to begin the contract process.

Texas Stream Team Program

Volunteer with Texas Stream Team!

The Texas Stream Team is a network of trained volunteers and supportive partners working together to understand and protect Texas waterways. Texas Stream Team is administered through a cooperative partnership between Texas State University, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Hundreds of Texas Stream Team volunteers collect water quality data on waterways throughout Texas. The City of Fort Worth is a Partner with the Texas Stream Team Program by supporting local volunteers who perform sampling in Fort Worth.

The only qualification is an interest in protecting Texas’ natural resources! Volunteers complete three phases of training using a test kit that measures physical and chemical parameters in water. Volunteers are asked to monitor their site(s) monthly at the same time of day each month, for a two year commitment. Monitoring takes approximately one to two hours per month per site.
