Consider the Adopt-a-Safety Path Program.   Your group would help clean and maintain a section of the West Bloomfield Township safety path network.  Your group would see first hand the positive affect their efforts have on their neighborhoods. 

Not only is cleaning our paths a great way to protect our environment but a clean and inviting safety path network will promote it's use, creating a healthier community and a healthier you.
