Help us rejuvenate Shoal Creek. We can do it together!

Volunteer Work Days

One of the best ways you can help improve Shoal Creek is by lending a hand at one of our volunteer work days. Throughout the year, our fearless volunteers roll up their sleeves and get to work on trash pick-up, seed planting, invasive species removal, and many other projects. Volunteer work days are open to anyone willing to get a little dirty to make a big difference.

Check out pictures from previous events, then register for an upcoming work day!

Report Pollution

We are Shoal Creek’s eyes and ears, and the City of Austin wants to hear from us. If you see pollution or spills along the trail or waterway, report them immediately by calling the City’s 24-hour pollution hotline at 512-974-2550.

Also, consult our list of resources for reporting other issues such as graffiti, litter, dumping and vegetation overgrowth.


Share your own volunteer ideas!

Is there a specific Shoal Creek project you’d like to tackle? Do you have a set of skills that you’d be willing to share? (Examples include but are not limited to photography, trail maintenance, graphic design, marketing, etc.)

We’re always looking for new ways to showcase Shoal Creek and promote community engagement, so send us an email at [email protected] with your ideas.
