About

Colorado River Alliance and Travis County Parks are bringing a whole new meaning to spring cleaning! Our beautiful parks and Texas Colorado River need a little “spring-cleaning” –and we need YOUR help! Join us on April 24th – the Saturday after Earth Day – to get your hands dirty while helping to keep our Mother Earth clean.

The Spring Clean Downstream features a variety of volunteer opportunities, both at-home and in more than 7 park locations! In addition to removing litter from shoreline parks, you will help us celebrate Earth Day by removing invasive species, planting natives, and repairing and beautifying park structures.
