TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - A ceremony took place Monday to honor a special group of people from Davis-Monthan Air Force Base who help keep the streets of Tucson looking good.

The area they are credited with cleaning is Golf Links Road between Craycroft and Swan.  This group has been picking up trash in the area for the past eight months.

Volunteers have worked more than 300,000 hours since the program began in the mid 1980s, picking up litter and reporting maintenance needs from 270 Tucson area parks, streets and washes on a regular basis.

The ceremony today marked the 300th ongoing 'Adopt-a-Public area' project.

Tucson Mayor Jonathan Rothschild attended the ceremony to honor the group of D-M volunteers from the Desert Lightning Team Top Three.
