Events

Bastrop River Rally Our biggest event of the year. Will include activities for the entire family. Central to the BRR is the kayak/canoe clean-up of the Colorado River. There will be an Environmental Expo, a 5k River Run/Clean-up Walk, and Food and Music at Neighbor’s Restaurant and Yard.
Team Up to Clean-Up KBCB will partner with the City of Bastrop for a clean-up/ recycling challenge. This year we will be seeking additional Community Sponsors to provide prizes and awards.
Recycle More Art Contest Engages school-age students in Bastrop, Smithville and Elgin. Through a partnership with HEB, KBCB awards prizes to students who create holiday ornaments out of recycled materials. With additional sponsorships, KBCB can expand this program to reach more students and teachers in Bastrop County.
FestiviTREEs A competition between Bastrop businesses to create trees with recycled items to promote recycling in a fun, seasonal way. We will be adding more opportunities this year to highlight these fabulous trees.

Programs

College Scholarships In both 2014 and 2015, KBCB in partnership with Lone Star Disposal, awarded $1000 scholarships to two local high school seniors. In 2016-17, with the help of local sponsors, KBCB hopes to increase scholarship awards to students who can demonstrate a commitment to environmental stewardship.
Recycling Information in Bastrop County In 2014-15 with a Capital Area Council of Governments grant, KBCB published 2000 copies of “Talking Trash” (a guide to recycling), available in both English and Spanish. KBCB has an interactive recycling matrix on our website that directs the public to all recycling locations in the county. This Recycling Matrix needs regular updating to continue to be useful. Sponsors/donations are needed to ensure this information is kept up-to-date.
Lost Pines Nature Trails Park Through a grant with the National Park Service, KBCB is leading a diverse group of partners to protect, secure, and manage the resources, facilities, and visitors at the 28-acre Lost Pines Nature Trails (LPNT) site on the Colorado River. The LPNT site is a key launch and take-out location on the El Camino Real Paddling Trail and the Wilbarger Paddling Trail. Sponsors/donations are needed to cover the cost of work performed by the Lost Pines Master Naturalists Chapter who currently maintain the park.
Quarterly Environmental Community Meetings Each Quarter KBCB will be hosting community meetings on various environmental topics. Sponsors are needed to offset meeting room space and refreshment costs.
