What is Fountain Creek Week?
The Fountain Creek Watershed needs helping hands! It’s common for trash and debris to end up in waterways – clogging drainage systems, impacting wildlife, affecting water quality and ruining the view of our natural landscapes.
Roll up your sleeves to take action during Creek Week by volunteering for cleanup duty and litter patrol along a creek, trail, park or open space throughout the watershed. We’re inviting individuals and groups (families, clubs, schools, neighborhoods, etc.) to form a Creek Crew for the 4th Annual Creek Week Cleanup. Get outdoors, get active, and create some good for your community and those living downstream.
Countdown to the 2017 cleanup
GoCoSprings – COS residents only. Use this app to indicate drainage issues, graffiti and park/trail maintenance issues.
CleanSwell – Easily track what you find out there, and have it go into an international database.
“It’s inspiring and uplifting to be part of a group that does, in fact, care about the world and is willing to spend time making it a better, cleaner, and healthier home for all of us.”
“It was eye-opening. I came in hoping to help, but it helped me instead. The group’s passion is also undeniable. It’s very contagious. #crew”
“Not only did I get to help clean the environment, I also met some incredible people, and got to interact with cyclists who thanked us for helping keep the trails beautiful.”
