Creek Week

When: Sept. 24-Oct. 1 2016

We live in a stunning region, but keeping it that way often takes extra TLC from our community, particularly where our waterways are concerned. Our creeks and rivers collect a lot of trash and debris, creating an environment that is not just unsightly, but also unhealthy. Enter Fountain Creek Week, a community-wide cleanup of the watershed. The cleanup kicks off on Sept. 24 and runs through Oct. 2 with events in Colorado Springs, upstream neighbor Green Mountain Falls and downstream neighbor Pueblo. You can also pick your own waterway that's close to home, such as a neighborhood stream. The cleanup is open to everyone, from individuals to schools to Scouts, and the Fountain Creek Watershed Flood Control and Greenway District will provide cleanup supplies and necessary safety information for anyone forming a creek crew. Find locations, events and registration at fountaincreekweek.com. Times and locations vary, 719/668-4686. — Bridgett Harris
