Help beautify Lady Bird Lake
Friday, September 3, 2021 by Tai Moses
Looking for a way to volunteer, but want to be outdoors and stay Covid-safe? The Watershed Protection Department and Keep Austin Beautiful are partnering on large-scale cleanups at Lady Bird Lake every other month. There are a couple dozen locations to choose from around the lake – some involve picking up litter at the shoreline while other opportunities have people skimming debris from the lake using kayaks, canoes or stand-up paddle boards. How fun is that! Group sizes are limited in order to ensure social distancing guidelines can be followed, and face masks are required. The next cleanup is Saturday, Sept. 11., 9-11 a.m. Find registration information here.
