Last year's Lake Travis Underwater Cleanup:
On Sunday, September 15th, 2013, 1,015 volunteers geared up with wetsuits, scuba tanks, trash bags, and gloves to clean Lake Travis above and below water. From the shoreline and depths of Lake Travis, volunteers collected 1.6 tons of trash finding everything from common keys, glasses, cell phones (including iPhones), pull tabs, a boat motor, and shoes to more bizarre tweezers, a 20-year-old cassette tape, men’s whitey tighty underwear, a crankshaft, and a stainless steel grill. But the most unusual shoreline item of all, a pink flamingo cemented in a bucket, was found by Pack 205, who won a two-hour chartered sailing trip prize for their find. The value of volunteer time (2,500 hours) totals $55,000, plus the $20 bill found during the cleanup at Starnes Island.
