Lake Travis – Spring Clean Downstream with Colorado River Alliance and Travis County Parks
April 24 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Colorado River Alliance and Travis County Parks are bringing a whole new meaning to spring cleaning! Our beautiful parks and Texas Colorado River need a little spring-cleaning“and we need YOUR help! Join us on April 24th – the Saturday after Earth Day – to get your hands dirty while helping to keep our Mother Earth clean.
The Texas Colorado River supplies drinking water for 1.5 million people in Central Texas as well as providing us with opportunities to boat, fish, SUP, kayak, and enjoy water safely. Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, it is more important than ever to cherish our natural resources and care for our outdoor spaces.
Those familiar with the Lake Travis Cleanup know the immense impact this annual event has on our parks and river. For 26 years, about 1,000 volunteers joined us each year to remove more than 5 tons of trash and debris from Lake Travis! After a successful Fall event, Colorado River Alliance and Travis County Parks are offering a socially-distanced spring cleanup event.
The Spring Clean Downstream includes hundreds of volunteer opportunities in more than 10 park locations! In addition to removing litter from shoreline parks, you will help us celebrate Earth Day by removing invasive species, planting natives, and repairing and beautifying park structures. A full list of projects, shift times, and volunteer numbers can be found on the registration site beginning Monday, March 22, 2021.
