Last Friday about 25 volunteers from the HBA and HBA Cares rolled up their sleeves to help remove over 40 bags of trash from Fountain Watershed as part of Creek Week. The Creek Crew cleaned Sinton Trail between Holland Park and N. Chestnut Street in Colorado Springs.
Creek Week began in 2014 as a way to encourage citizens to help remove litter and debris from our land and waters, raise awareness of watershed health, and to foster a sense of community. Since then, Creek Week has grown into an annual event that continues to provide an opportunity for communities to give back, to enjoy the parks and trails they are cleaning, and to understand their place in the Fountain Creek Watershed.
