Neighborhood volunteers made a big impact in area parks during It’s My Park Day last month, and this weekend we have another chance to make Austin a better place during Clean Sweep.
Clean Sweep is Keep Austin Beautiful’s annual volunteer event at parks, waterways, schools and neighborhoods all around the city. Two of the closest cleanups to our neighborhood will be at Country Club Creek between Riverside and Oltorf and in the Blunn Creek Nature Preserve. You can use the Clean Sweep locator map to find more events, and can sign up online to volunteer.
Following the two-hour cleanup on Saturday, a volunteer party and environmental fair at Fiesta Gardens will feature free lunch and T-shirts, live music, games, contests and door prizes.
Clean Sweep: 9-11 a.m. April 12, various locations.
Volunteer party: 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. April 12, Fiesta Gardens
