About

Hello volunteers! Help Keep Austin Beautiful celebrate Valentine's Day and give some extra LOVE to our wonderful Lady Bird Lake. On Saturday, February 10th, join our team in wearing your favorite (litter collecting-friendly) Valentine's attire. Since 2009, Keep Austin Beautiful has organized large-scale cleanups of Lady Bird Lake every other month. We train volunteer leaders to conduct cleanups at multiple locations along the shoreline and on the water. We are looking forward to everyone joining us for cooler weather and participating in our Clean Lady Bird Lake program. 


“Know Before You Go”

Before you head out, please keep the following in mind:

  • Be aware that toxic algae blooms can occur in Lady Bird Lake. Whenever you're around natural bodies of water, remain vigilant.
  • Recognize that zebra mussels are invasive and widespread in Texas waterways. Let us know if you see any zebra mussels during your volunteer activity. 
  • Be able to identify poison ivy, oak, and sumac; identifying these plants is essential for a safe cleanup.
  • Hydrate and take precautions to prevent heat-related illnesses. Consult this guide for tips on recognizing and addressing heat-related issues.
  • For directions on where you are going for your cleanup - look at the Clean Lady Bird Lake Maps available!
