Flood Control And Greenway District

Creek Week

Creek Week is a program of the Fountain Creek Watershed Flood Control and Greenway District

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.

Be part of the largest watershed-wide clean-up in the state of Colorado! Creek Week volunteers clean up litter 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 8th Annual Creek Week Clean-Up. Get outdoors, get active, and create some good for your community and those living downstream.


Our Mission

The Creek Week cleanup aims to bring the Fountain Creek Watershed communities together to foster the health of our local waterways for its citizens and wildlife alike.


Vision

To achieve and sustain a healthy Fountain Creek Watershed.
