Fifth Annual Creek Week Cleanup, Sept. 29-Oct. 7, times vary, various locations, fountaincreekweek.com.
In its fifth year, the nine-day Fountain Creek Week Cleanup
event continues its mission to beautify the Fountain Creek Watershed while getting the community involved. Open to anyone — all ages, abilities and demographics — Creek Week offers a chance for those who might not always consider where our litter goes to see its real-world impact. Last year, 80 percent of surveyed participants claimed that Creek Week changed the way they viewed our local waterways. If you’re looking for an eye-opening experience, and a chance to do some good, consider registering to join one of many cleanup crews operating throughout the week and throughout the region.
