The Patagonia Museum conducts litter cleanups on Highway 82, between Mileposts 18 and 19, on a seasonal basis.
We meet at the ramadas on Beaty Lane and Highway 82. The museum mile is one of the more picturesque areas on Highway 82. Bordering the Nature Conservancy and the Patagonia Cemetery, the road leads our volunteers on a historic route through what was once the eastern section of the San Jose de Sonoita Land Grant. Usually, we fill two to three bags full of litter. One bag is usually recyclable, with cardboard, aluminum cans and plastic water bottles collected.
