MSEL Students Take a Leadership Role

Students at Terra Linda High’s Marin School for Environmental Leadership are developing a program to examine the sources of litter in Marin and how to combat it. They know that education is the primary tool in eradicating litter. Joan Murray of Clean Mill Valley and Jill Whitebook and Vicky Dehnert of Marin Clean Highways meet with the the students weekly throughout the semester to offer support and guidance for their project.

We are also working with other students at schools in Marin and welcome any teacher or student to contact us about earning community service hours or obtaining an internship with Clean Mill Valley. Contact Joan Murray at for more information.

Welcome to
Adopt A Spot!

Some of our members have already adopted spots where they regularly pick up litter. We are seeing good results, but we need more hands! We are encouraging people to pitch in and adopt a section of a street in their neighborhood, an area of a favorite Step, Lane or Path, or an unsightly corner at a bus stop. We hope our combined efforts will help keep our town, its creeks, marshes and Bay clean.

If you have any questions or would like to pitch in and adopt a spot to clean up, please contact Jill at This will help us to coordinate our efforts and spread the word about Adopt A Spot!
