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 in bounds.

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