Join us for the Keep Austin Beautiful annual Lake Travis shoreline cleanup (http://keepaustinbeautiful.org/underwater?utm_source=Austin+EcoNewsletter&utm_campaign=6f83577a7c-EcoNews81513_%2B1_B2S_Springs_AFiN_KAB_IEN_HOA_HEB&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_e376911220-6f83577a7c-171044098). 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.
