About

Join Keep San Antonio Beautiful, in partnership with the city of San Antonio Parks and Recreation, in helping pickup litter at Olmos Basin Park along the banks of Olmos Creek. 

After a heavy rainfall, Olmos Basin Park does experience flooding therefore collects quite a bit of trash and debris in the creek.  

Here's a great chance to explore another beautiful park and make a difference in helping keep our communities clean and free of trash and litter.
