Lake Travis Shoreline Cleanup (optional: SCUBA)

Join us for the Keep Austin Beautiful annual Lake Travis shoreline cleanup.  Meet at Bob Wentz - Windy Point Park at 8:30 AM.  We'll provide the trash bags;  you bring gloves, hat, water bottle.  Before 10:30 we should be done and I will give everyone a wristband to get into the party.  Join us for a volunteers' party at the Oasis where they will take off the wristband and give you a T shirt and a raffle ticket.  Free lunch is provided.  After a couple of hours they draw tickets for a chance to win fabulous prizes.

Volunteers will get free entry into the park.  Check this page before the event for updates!

For experienced SCUBA divers (not part of Sierra Club event):

Come for the underwater cleanup at the same location... You MUST BE A CERTIFIED DIVER; no lessons or refreshers are offered.  You MUST PROVIDE ALL YOUR GEAR.  You WILL NOT DIVE ALONE - divers will pair up and if there is an odd number there will be a group of three.  Recommended to bring gloves for picking up trash, and dive light  (since the visibility may be poor and you need to keep track of your dive buddy).  Most of the trash is in less than 30 feet of water.  Wristbands and everything else mentioned above applies.

 

 

Please mention on your RSVP if you will be doing the shore or diving so I know what we have.  Thanks.

    One of the most disorganized and poorly run event ever.
    Next year I suggest everyone sign up with one of the three REAL organizers DIRECTLY!
    I'm sure they will give you the CORRECT starting time and a SPECIFIC place to meet, not have you wandering around aimlessly trying to find where you should gather....
    Just a suggestion: When someone leads a meetup SOMEWHERE in a 200 acre park, post a CELLPHONE number where you can be contacted...

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
