My wife and I just Adopted a 1/4 mile of Walnut Creek and the process was a very fun experience as well as an opportunity to learn from Erin Cord, program coordinator of Keep Austin Beautiful.

There are so many resources that KAB provides you with for maintenance to make your experience even more rich. Adopt-a-Creek is a fantastic and well managed program. I would recommend to everyone who loves our parkland + creeks and wants to make a noticeable environmental impact.
