Keep Austin Beautiful Happenings

Take a drive through Bastrop State Park and you can still see remnants of the 2011 fires that devastated the local habitat. Slowly but surely, the area is being reforested. Our Keep Austin Beautiful Green Teens contributed to this effort for the third year in a row on this past Valentines Day.
 
The group of 60, hailed from six different schools, discovered that restoration work can be fun. They rallied together as "environmental warriors" painting their faces with charcoal, chanting, and exhibiting an unrelenting determination to reach their goal of planting 950 Loblolly Pine saplings.

Keep Austin Beautiful would like to recognize the 2014 Award Winners. The amazing winners have gone above and beyond volunteering to restore local creeks, taken action to clean-up Lady Bird Lake, fostered the next generation of environmental leaders, and have led the way in establishing Austin as a green and sustainable city.  Each has utilized Keep Austin Beautiful’s resources and programming to amplify their contributions to the city...
