This year, KBCB will host its third river clean-up of the El Camino Paddle Trail. Over 200 people volunteered to paddle the river, run along the river, learn and have fun beside the river.
You can either paddle in the River Clean-Up along the six mile trail from Fisherman’s Park to the take out near the Lost Pines Nature Trail to pick trash from the Colorado River – Or you can participate in a River Run whether it it is a 5k or 1k Fun Run.
The Bastrop River Rally, our mother event, will be hosted on an annual basis and will include various sub-events that support our community and natural resources. This year’s sub-events will include:
Paddle a boat down the El Camino Trail of the Colorado River , pick up some trash and eat pizza at Neighbor’s Kitchen & Yard! A $100 value excursion for the gracious donation of only $10! Can’t be beat! Not only are you getting the chance to impact your local environment by cleaning up the river, you are getting to explore nature at a fraction of the cost. This donation goes right back into Bastrop County in the form of trash clean-ups, recycling information, environmental scholarships and educational workshops throughout the year! We thank you for doing your part to Keep Bastrop County Beautiful!
Check out our many Display Programs, Fishing training and to view and learn about the local Flora and Fauna. Booths will also be offering games for families, spectators and volunteers. We hope to attract more than 200 participants for this new event. Other exhibitors will be present to provide information that will heighten awareness of future projects and activities to promote the use of the river and the potential of Fisherman’s Park trails to extend all the way to the take out area in the Colorado River Refuge. A Key Note Speaker will hold an Environmental Update discussing the future plans for the parks along the Colorado River in Bastrop. To apply to become an exhibitor, whether as a business/organization, artist, non-profit or food vendor please apply online.
A Fun Run will start and end at Fisherman’s Park. Participants may opt to run or walk in an informal, un-timed, fun trail run 5k or 1k. The new exciting option is participating in picking up trash on the 1k route and Fisherman’s Park as a walk.
After volunteers and run participants complete their clean-up assignments and events,shuttles will run from LPNT to Fisherman’s Park (for boaters) to Neighbors Kitchen and Yard, where they will be invited to enjoy some outdoor fun, food, drinks, and live music to celebrate their efforts. The Environmental Expo will also end after boaters return, allowing all spectators to congratulate the volunteers and participants and listen to live music together at Neighbor’s Kitchen & Yard.
