To help Keep Austin Beautiful, I adopted a 1/4 mile segment of creek along the JJ Seabrook Greenbelt with the Hofmann Lab for the next two years. Four times a year, we will have clean ups and restoration projects to reduce the amount of trash entering the creek, improve water quality, and restore habitats along the waterway.
