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.

“A healthy, flowing Texas Colorado River is imperative to the well-being of millions of people throughout the river basin. Big volunteer days like the Lake Travis Cleanup are a great way to remind folks that Lake Travis is part of the river system –  we are all connected via the River. I’m so excited to see toddlers and teenagers out here today because I’m hopeful they will grow-up with an appreciation for our Lakes and Rivers and a desire to be a river steward and protector.” 

Adrienne Longenecker, Executive Director of Colorado River Alliance

In Memoriam:
Sr. Deputy Jessica L. Hollis


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.

Finley through the years!
