Help is Needed for Creek Week Cleanup

Help is Needed for Creek Week Cleanup

Creek Week 2018 is on! Join nearly 2,500 people across the watershed, from Palmer Lake to Woodland Park to Pueblo in the largest outdoor cleanup in the state of Colorado. It’s a chance to spend a beautiful autumn day outside, meet cool like minded people, and make a real difference in your community and your world. There are public cleanups all across the region, on multiple days (including trail maintenance work days with the Rocky Mountain Field Institute!), so you can find an event that’s close to you and convenient at the same time!
