Join us this Earth Day - Friday, April 22nd - for one heck of a community-wide clean up along Lady Bird Lake! Volunteers will have the option to launch from one of two locations: Rowing Dock (West end) or Epic SUP (East end). From there, you’ll select whether you would like to pick up trash by boat or by walking trails along the river. This event is free to all, with advance registration required. All kayaks, SUPs and canoes will be provided. Our friends at Keep Austin Beautiful are providing all supplies.
As a part of your registration, you’ll receive a t-shirt, a goodie bag, and food and beverages - courtesy of our brand sponsors. Large prizes will be awarded throughout the day for those that bring back the most trash and the most unique item.

Doing your part matters
Being able to live and work in Austin - a place known for its lush green spaces and natural get-aways like Lady Bird Lake - is pretty darn amazing. Plus, as locals that reside in this magical place, we are lucky to benefit from its incredible growth. But - we also know we can't take this beautiful place for granted. It's time to join the clean-up club, y'all.
