Welcome! Rules and Guidelines


Welcome to the unofficial discussion forum for Bloomington Adopt-a volunteers and staff! Keeping our urban forests healthy and our neighborhoods clean and functional is everyone’s responsibility. This discussion board is meant to help facilitate constructive and cooperative action to this end.


  1. You must sign up and be approved to post.
  2. No spam or advertisements. Recommendations for relevant products or services (arborists, tree services, excavators, landscapers, etc) are permitted within reason.
  3. No rants. This is a constructive space. Please take rants to a more appropriate venue such as Facebook or reddit.com/r/bloomington. To report a specific issue with parks or infrastructure to City staff, please use uReport.
  4. No hate speech or illegal content. Failure to comply with this rule will result in removal of the content and an immediate ban.
