AKA Clean Sweep 2016

“Each April, Keep Austin Beautiful hosts Clean Sweep, a city-wide service day spanning 130+ sites in 31 zip codes throughout Austin and resulting in over 29 tons of trash removed by 4,000 plus volunteer who contribute 8,700 combined service hours.”

Join Keep Austin Beautiful and your Dawson Neighbors for Clean Sweep – Austin’s annual city-wide service day on April 9th where over 4,000 volunteers join together on an ordinary Saturday morning to make an extraordinary difference.  Dawson neighbors will clean East Bouldin Creek from 9AM-11AM beginning at Alpine Pond (meet on Alpine St.).  Meet your neighbors while having fun and making a noticeable impact. Volunteer and when you sign-up, give us your T-shirt size! For questions contact Site Leader Marisa at mfushille@nullgmail.com

Trash bags and litter-grabbers are provided. Please wear light boots (there will be muddy banks and wet rocks). Wear long-legged pants and long-sleeved shirts with gloves to protect you from poison ivy. Some folks like to wear a small backpack to carry water and energy snacks.

“The network of cleanups is followed by a not-to-be-missed volunteer party featuring free t-shirts, lunch, live music, children’s environmental activities, recycled art, a unique object contest, door prizes, and more!”

After the cleanups, volunteers are invited to a FREE volunteer party, 11AM-1:30PM featuring live music, free lunch (vegetarian food available), door prizes, and performance by Animal Facts Club showcasing the Biodiversity of Texas.

This is a HUGE party for the volunteers held at Fiesta Gardens, 2101 Jesse E Segovia Street. You’ll get a ticket at the door, so your ticket number may be called for a door prize throughout the afternoon – stay late! The prizes range from little things to expense-paid vacations!
