Description

Join Keep Austin Beautiful staff for a morning of service along 360! While we love the holiday spirit, inevitably the decorations have to come down to keep our city clean and our trees healthy. Removing the left-over decorations is a priority for Keep Austin Beautiful due to the concern for the surrounding environment. The festive accessories pose a potential threat to wildlife that may mistake the ornaments for food and for the nearby Bull Creek as the items come loose and wash into the creek.  

We will be cleaning up the tree decorations along 360.  Most of the decorations are between Bee Cave Rd and 183 on Highway 360.  When visiting a location, we ask volunteers to pull as far off of the shoulder as possible (in many cases there is an area you can park next to the shoulder on the grass) and use your hazard lights.  Be wary of cyclists when you pull off the highway.  Some of the decorations are located on trees that are near the edge of a cliff.  Please use extreme caution if you decide to remove these decorations.  

Volunteers should come prepared to work outside on uneven terrain. Please be sure to dress for the weather and wear comfortable clothing that you don't mind getting dirty or wet. Bring a reusable water bottle and stay hydrated. Be ready to work hard and have fun!
