From swimming to hiking, Austinites live for nature.
Keeping Austin clean and enjoyable is dirty, dirty
work. Keep Austin Beautiful is an organization
based on keeping trash out of nature and giving
back to the environment. From organizing group
clean ups to planting and teaching children how
to plant gardens, they’re mission is to maintain
the beauty that draws people to our gorgeous
city. We’re doing what we can to help them out.
What looks like it could have been a camp site is

Austin is a city filled with people who love the outdoors. Hiking, rock climbing, running,
swimming, kayaking, canoeing, fishing, biking, and just enjoying nature are staples in any
Austin residents lifestyle. We are going to continue to work with K.A.B. to clean parks and
creeks to make them safer and more suitable for children to play at. The organization is
constantly going through supplies such as trash bags, hand sanitizer, trash grabbers,
gloves, and a list of other supplies necessary to cpmplete a clean up. It would be a huge
benefit to Keep Austin Beautiful and the city of Austin to be granted any portion of the
donation money. This organization deserves to flourish like the city it keeps clean.
Special thanks to the technicians in the Austin, TX branch and
the members of Keep Austin Beautiful that continue to do what
we can to keep our city beautiful.
