Giving Back

We build communities by working together and giving back.

Cooperative partnerships help further The Expedition School’s mission. Through these collaborative efforts – we hope to capture the audience of the community at large while simultaneously inspiring volunteerism and environmental stewardship.

Some of our partners include Texas School for the Deaf, Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired, Surfrider Foundation, UT Rec Sports, Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, American Red Cross, Austin Parks Foundation, Trail Foundation, Hill Country Conservancy – EPIC, Colorado River Foundation – LCRA, City of Austin Parks and Recreation Department, Keep Austin Beautiful, Colin’s Hope, Friends of the OSA – Costa Rica, and MINAET – Costa Rica.

We hope to see you at our next community event!

Keep Austin Beautiful – Lady Bird Lake Clean-Ups

Lady Bird Lake is described as the crown jewel of Austin, and for good reason. With miles of trails, places to picnic or play with your dog, Stand Up Paddling (SUP), canoeing and kayaking access, and close proximity to Downtown, Lady Bird Lake exemplifies the active/laid back Austin lifestyle.

The Expedition School supports ongoing clean-ups of Lady Bird Lake:

  • We work with Keep Austin Beautiful to keep our waterway free of trash and debris. Join us for the next clean up at the City of Austin Parks and Recreation Lorraine Grandma Camacho Center! Go to the Keep Austin Beautiful website to register for the event.
  • Get rid of the Styrofoam!  Join Team KAB, The Trail Foundation, and Watershed Protection to help clean our crown jewel. This program is made possible thanks to generous funding from The Trail Foundation and Watershed Protection.
