And the Shoal Creek Conservancy People’s Choice Award for Favorite Program goes to…Adopt-a-Creek! The award recognizes Adopt-A-Creek for successfully engaging citizens in making a lasting commitment to protect our waterways. Adopters make a two year commitment to a ¼ mile segment of creek conducting at least four cleans ups a year and completing restoration projects in an effort to reduce the amount of trash entering creeks, improve water quality, and restore habitats in and along Shoal Creek and other waterways.
We are so very grateful for the recognition. The award would not be possible without our partnership with Austin Watershed and our adopters along Shoal Creek: Absolute Texxas, Austin Families in Nature, Austin Standup Paddle, CHSM Hill, Cook-Joyce Inc Engineering, Gullett Elementary School, Silicon Labs, Tau Beta Pi, and Tzu Chi Foundation.
