Otsego County Conservation Association will be holding a highway cleanup along State Route 80 on Saturday, August 20 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.  The cleanup is part of New York State’s Adopt-A-Highway program. OCCA adopted this portion of the road in 2013. Volunteers will meet at OCCA’s office at Mohican Farm, at the corner of Route 80 and Allen Lake Road, and will collect trash along a two-mile stretch of the road.  Bags, water, and safety equipment are provided. Participants should wear long pants and sturdy shoes, and bring sunscreen.If interested in participating, contact Jeff O’Handley at (607) 547-4488.
