Seeking Watershed Warriors

Our lands and waterways need some heling hands!

Trash and debris on the land eventually end up in our waterways. This rubbish clogs drainage systems, impacts wildlife, affects water quality and ruins the view of our beautiful natural landscapes.

Commit today to take action during CREEK WEEK by volunteering for a cleanup at one of over 100 sites over 9 days thought your home watershed. Individuals and groups (families, clubs, school, church groups, neighbors, etc.) are invited to form a “Creek Crew” during the biggest cleanup in the State of Colorado!

Get outdoors, get active, and create some good for your community and those living and playing downstream.
