Ready, Set, Plant!

A Creekside Sapling Program

Ready, Set, Plant! is a riparian sapling planting program dedicated to the art and science of creekside restoration and community placemaking. Through the active engagement of volunteers and restoration expertise, this program is growing in leaps and bounds.

For the past 6 years Ready, Set, Plant! has transformed degraded creeksides with the help of creek adopters, girl and boy scout troops, neighborhood and corporate groups, and Austin’s super volunteers into burgeoning Grow Zones, brimming with diversity and life. Volunteers will finish their creek projects feeling connected to nature and each other. Volunteers will also return in future years to visit ‘their’ creek.

Ready, Set, Plant! is in partnership with the Community Tree Preservation, City of Austin Watershed Protection Department, and Keep Austin Beautiful.
