The 24th annual Lake Travis Cleanup is taking place Sunday, September 16, at sites around the reservoir. Last year, volunteers removed more than 10,000 pounds of trash and recycling from the water and shoreline. This huge effort helps protect Austin’s drinking water supply year-round.
We’re hoping for an even bigger cleanup this year. You can register to volunteer at a shoreline or bring-your-own-boat site here on the Keep Austin Beautiful website. If you’re interested in joining one of the scuba diving teams, please visit the Lake Travis Cleanup website for more details.
You can also pitch in by volunteering at the Volunteer Appreciation Party following the cleanup. Taking place at the beautiful Oasis, with stunning views of the lake, you can help serve food, ensure proper recycling and composting, or put on the Finley the Fish costume and help entertain the guests. Appreciation Party volunteer registration is also available on the Keep Austin Beautiful website.
