About Creek Week

Creek Week September 30 – October 8 2023

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 10th Annual Creek Week Clean-Up. Get outdoors, get active, and create some good for your community and those living downstream.

Registration Coming Soon!

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.

6th Annual Pikes Peak Litter Letter Project

May contain: Litter Letter Project

Every year, the Fountain Creek Watershed Flood Control and Greenway District partners with local organizations for the Pikes Peak Litter Letter Project. This annual event produces a sculpture created from collected trash along our local waterways and public lands. The trash collected from Creek Week as well as other clean up events is used to create this unique piece of community art! It will be on display throughout October to celebrate Arts Month.
