The Lake Travis Cleanup is brought to you by event partners Colorado River Alliance, Keep Austin Beautiful, and Travis County Parks. Each agency has combined efforts to put the event on for the past 16 years! Here is a little more information about each participating partnering agency.
Colorado River Alliance
The Colorado River Alliance is the only nonprofit organization dedicated solely to the conservation and protection of the Texas Colorado River. The Colorado River Alliance has been increasing community awareness of the Colorado River’s environmental and economic importance since 1994. They provide, conduct, and support environmental science and outdoor education programs for youth, river cleanups, and other river-centered projects that bring awareness to the Colorado River.

KAB’s goal is to clean, beautify and protect the Austin environment through physical improvements and hands-on education.

Travis County Parks
Take time to explore a land of amazingly diverse beauty — from lakes and hills to rivers and prairies — and more. Nowhere else in Texas will you find such a variety of recreational opportunities so close at hand. Want to sail or scuba dive one of the clearest lakes in Texas? Observe one of the largest and most varied migratory bird populations in the country? You can do it right here in the parks of Travis County, along with baseball, soccer, picnics, hiking, nature study, or just leaning back to view a spectacular Hill Country sunset. Your opportunities for exploration are virtually unlimited! Enjoy the many parks features and help us add to and maintain them so that future generations may enjoy them as well.
Want to get involved? Travis County parks offer many meaningful avenues for volunteers. Whether your interests lie in research, guiding tours, trail development or being a helpful steward by picking up trash, park staff are eager to make use of your knowledge and skills.
