29th Annual Lake Travis Cleanup
Thank you to our volunteers during the 29th Annual Lake Travis Cleanup!
Together, in just one day, 605 shoreline, park, and dive volunteers from 31 zip codes removed more than 8,000 pounds of trash from Lake Travis and surrounding parks.
Our volunteers removed large pieces of metal, cable/rope, docks, and boats exposed by the low water levels.
Congratulations to our
2023 1st place photo contest winners!
The Lake Travis Cleanup is hosted in partnership by Colorado River Alliance and Travis County Parks. Thank you, TC Parks, for supporting the Lake Travis Cleanup and for your commitment to protecting and preserving the Texas Colorado River.
“Texans have depended on the Colorado River for life itself for centuries so it’s fitting that we make time to ensure Lake Travis is pollution free….Many thanks to the Colorado River Alliance for recruiting volunteers!”Commissioner Ann Howard, volunteer

Jessica was swept away while checking a low water crossing in her patrol car on September 18, 2014. She loved the Lake Travis Cleanup and 2014 was her second year participating. We will miss her very much. Jessica is pictured above with Travis County Sherrif’s Office Lake Patrol Dive Captain Jose Escribano.
