Live Green Lansing back

Adopt a Spot

With 55 rain gardens and 170 planted gardens within the downtown area, the Downtown Lansing Inc. and the City of Lansing have a continuing need for volunteers interested in keeping our downtown beautiful.

Adopt-A-Spot provides an opportunity for the business community and volunteers to play an active and on-going role in cleaning, greening and maintaining our downtown area through adoption of a site.  Sites for adoption include rain gardens, flowerbeds, historical markers and other public spaces within the downtown area.

With a minimal commitment of periodically picking-up litter, pulling weeds, and basic maintenance of your site, you can greatly contribute in keeping Lansing a more beautiful place to live, work and recreate.  Recognition of your site adoption will be posted on a sign close to your adopted location.  It's time to show everyone in Lansing that you and your business take pride in the downtown area and care about the urban environment as well as your surroundings.

Be a part of the solution and help join the effort as Lansing continues to be a cleaner and greener community. For more information about becoming an Adopt-A-Spot volunteer please call 517.483.4563 or e-mail Nparker@downtownlansing.org

You can also simply fill out the Adopt a Spot Application Form and return it to Downtown Lansing Inc., 401 S. Washington Sq., Ste. 101 Lansing MI 48933 or fax to 517-483-6057.
