Volunteers and Champion needed for

Creek Week!

What is Creek Week?

Creek Week is a 9-day, watershed-wide litter and debris collection event that takes place at the end of September and beginning of October. Service groups, neighborhood associations, scouts, schools, churches, and individuals all donate their time to help clean up the Fountain Creek Watershed. The event is also a chance to raise awareness about the watershed, our water supply, the district and the littering issue to make our communities cleaner, safer and more beautiful.

  1. Would it be possible to organize a clean up on Fountain Creek this spring? Since it would all be outside, it seems any covid concerns would be minimized. I watched the film by Malcom Gewirz & Alex Weinman which was excellent, but sad to see the state of our local creek. It might be a good time to rally some troops. With everyone so cooped up from covid restrictions, it would be a fun and positive thing to do.

    • HI Judd and thank you for this input. We just discussed this topic at our board meeting last night. The answer is that there are clean-ups scheduled for Fountain Creek and yes we want to participate. I will post dates and times and events when we get details. Yes, the state of that wonderful creek is shameful. It deserves a better life!!
