Keep Austin Beautiful, Travis County, and the Colorado River Alliance are teaming up once again for the annual shoreline cleanup of Lake Travis. The biggest scuba diving and shoreline cleanup in Texas, the event is volunteer-driven and takes place this year on Sunday, September 13 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.
Shoreline volunteer sites include Arkansas Bend, Bob Wentz at Windy Point, Cypress Creek, Low Water Crossing, Mansfield Dam Park, Mansfield Dam Overlook, Pace Bend, Sandy Creek, Tom Hughes, and Hippie Hollow. Bring-your-own-boat volunteer options are in place at some of these locations.
A volunteer party at The Oasis will follow the cleanup from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The party will include free lunch, music, a “most unique object found” contest, door prizes, and children’s activities. All volunteers will receive a t-shirt. Volunteers also are needed at the party.
