It’s Time To Clean Up Lake Travis! The 18th Annual Lake Travis Underwater and Shoreline Cleanup is near!

If you’ve ever wanted to get involved in community projects to improve Lake Travis now is the time.  It’s unfortunate the lake is so terribly low.  However if there is one positive,  the low levels will allow for a much bigger trash cleanup.  It’s like being able to clean your house without anything in it!  It’s win-win for everyone involved.

This year will be the 18th Annual Lake Travis Underwater and Shoreline Cleanup.  If you are willing and able they are asking for local volunteers;  divers, shoreline cleanup, and event coordinators.   The event is set to take place September 23rd, 2012 , click here to register and for more details.   This event rids Lake Travis of tons of debris each year.  Volunteers collect an average of 5 tons of trash from different dive sites around Lake Travis while also helping to raise public awareness of the importance of Lake Travis and the Highland Lakes.
