Keep Austin Beautiful values the health and safety of our volunteers, neighbors, and staff. Therefore, in accordance with the recommendations of Austin Public Health and the COVID-19 Risk-Based Guidelines, Adopt-a-Creek has been postponed until further notice. As a result, the requirement to conduct four projects a year has been waived.
Keep Austin Beautiful engages citizens in making a lasting commitment to protect our waterways by adopting a ¼ mile segment for a minimum of two years. Adopters conduct at least four restoration projects in an effort to reduce improve water quality, stabilize creek banks, and restore habitats along waterways. Event ideas include invasive species removal, seed collection, and native tree or grass plantings. Interested volunteers are encouraged to check out our map below for unadopted areas that are ready for a lasting positive impact!
