In partnership with the City of Austin- Watershed Protection Department, Keep Austin Beautiful leads interactive science based activities for 3rd-8th graders to connect classroom learning with on-the-ground service projects that focus on protecting water quality.

Registration for the 2017-18 academic year is now open. In addition, check out our Activity Kits available for educators to lead their own water quality activities and more.

Participating schools receive two in-class presentations, followed by a service project at a local creek. During this half-day service learning field trip, students rotate through stations emphasizing creek restoration and clean water quality. Stations may include litter cleanup, seedball making, macroinvertebrate investigation, native vs invasive plant exploration, and scavenger hunt.

All Clean Creek Campus program supplies and materials are provided by Keep Austin Beautiful and Watershed Protection Department, including the cost of transportation for service project days as needed.

Service projects focus on Creek/Park Restoration: students participate in a 3-hour service learning field trip to a local creek/park during which they rotate through stations emphasizing creek restoration and water quality.
