Volunteer for Keep Austin Beautiful Day on Saturday, April 20th

Each April, Keep Austin Beautiful mobilizes thousands of volunteers for an incredible day of community service throughout the Greater Austin Area in honor of Earth Month. In 2023, over 2,200 volunteers participated in cleanups throughout all ten city council districts, removing litter and restoring our beloved green spaces and waterways. This year, there are over a hundred sites (including schools!) to choose from to volunteer on Saturday, April 20th, in honor of Keep Austin Beautiful.
