It's My Park Day Volunteer Lake Clean Up
Join your fellow Austinites and park lovers and help us clean up our lake! Volunteers will have the opportunity to select from cleaning up the park space around Rowing Dock on-land or getting into a kayak and cleaning up trash along Lady Bird Lake. Each shift will last two hours, and volunteers will receive a complimentary trash bag, gloves, and grabbers. As a thank you for your contribution, we’ll give you an additional free one-hour rental pass for each full bag of trash you bring to use on any future occasion.Sign Up

Sunset bat paddle
On this incredibly popular tour, you’ll take a 2-mile paddle to the famous Congress Avenue Bridge where you’ll watch and listen to over 1.5 million bats flying overhead en route to their nightly feeding. The 4-mile round-trip is accompanied by one of our excellent guides who will also teach you about prominent architecture across the skyline, the Austin power plant, Auditorium Shores, and much more. The tour is approximately two hours but please allow three hours, as the bats dictate our timing.Learn More
