In partnership with the City of Austin Watershed Protection Department, Keep Austin Beautiful organizes large-scale cleanups every other month, volunteer trainings, and a Rapid Rain Responder initiative to tackle trash from 25 locations along the shoreline and from watercrafts on and along Lady Bird Lake.
Keep Austin Beautiful aims to provide support for our fellow Keep Texas Beautiful members and their surrounding communities during their recovery process. In communicating with Keep Houston Beautiful and gathering information from other leaders in the disaster recovery space, Keep Austin Beautiful will be collecting flood cleanup supplies to aid communities as they repair their homes, outdoor spaces, and other areas that help make neighborhoods great places to live and work.
Keep Austin Beautiful, Travis County, and Colorado River Alliance team up annually for the biggest scuba diving and shoreline cleanup in Texas. Cleanups are followed by a volunteer party featuring free lunch, music, and children’s activities. All volunteers receive a free t-shirt!
