Creek Week Cleanup Event at America the Beautiful Park

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.

This cleanup crew is named the Planeteers after an 80’s cartoon about fighting pollution called Captain Planet. Keeping debris out of our waterways not only helps the wildlife and environmental conditions for the area, but contributes to better living for people too. Clean creeks benefit us by improving the quality of our drinking water and leads to better creek flow that helps during storms. We know there are other “Planeteers” out there who care about the planet and working to eliminate pollution!

To register to help out at this event contact Crew Leader: Rosemary Freeman, rosemary.freeman@coloradosprings.gov

The Fountain Watershed Creek Week is 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 take part. Get outdoors, get active, and create some good for your community and those living downstream.
