Spring Up the Creek
Join us in this annual area-wide effort to improve and enhance our local creeks by collecting and removing trash and debris along trails. Volunteers will be provided gloves, bags and a commemorative neck gaiter, while supplies last. Snacks and water will be available.
All ages are welcome and this is a perfect opportunity to fulfill community service hours while keeping Castle Rock beautiful and our watershed clean.
Saturday, May 1
8:30 to 11 a.m.
Backup date: Saturday, May 15
The 2021 event format has been changed to accommodate social distancing protocols. Volunteers will not be meeting at a central location, but rather at their designated trailhead or parking area. Volunteers will need to select a trail upon registration. Volunteers are responsible for providing their own transportation to that site. There are no children's activities or community booths for the 2021 event.
Online registration with a completed waiver is required prior to the event.
8:30 to 9 a.m. - Registration
