Adopt-a-Waterway Program

The Adopt-A-Waterway Program is a volunteer partnership with business, citizens, and civic groups that allows community-minded groups to formally adopt ¼ mile-to ½ mile creek segments. The program is open to all age groups! The adoptees agree to perform two litter cleanups annually on their adopted segment for a two year commitment. The city will coordinate with adoptees to determine appropriate and safe locations. As well as providing trash bags, trash pick-up after the clean-up event, gloves, and safety vest (if needed). The city will recognize adopting groups by providing signage for the adopted waterway. For more information, please contact Jerry Cordova at 719-385-5033 or by email at
