CALL FOR A LEADER FOR THE STACY SCOUTS – BLUNN CREEK STEWARDS

……part of Keep Austin Beautiful (KAB) Adopt-a- Creek program, in partnership with Austin Watershed Protection

Note: there are about 30 people already on the Stacy Scouts email list to draw on for clean-ups. The need at present is for a new team leader, to organize clean-up days and contact volunteers.

What's involved:

  • “Adopt” at least ¼ mile segment of an Austin creek for at least 2 years. In late 2012 the Stacy Scouts adopted Blunn Creek between Big and Little Stacy Parks.
  • Conduct at least 4 creek and creek-side cleans-ups per year. Two of these can be in conjunction with KAB Clean Sweep in April and It's My Park Day (Austin Parks Foundation event) in November.

KAB provides:

  • Guidance for planning cleans-ups and trash collection.
  • Supplies – trash bags, gloves, long-handled grabbers, etc,
  • Tools and technical assistance for creek restoration projects, removal of non-native plants (e.g. Ligustrum,etc.)
