Creek Week Community Cleanup
Saturday, October 7, 2023
The Manitou Garden Club has awarded a grant to Fountain Creek Watershed, Flood Control, & Greenway District to provide a native plant to all the volunteers who participate in the Creek Week Cleanup! They are partnering with Rick’s Garden who's supplying the greenhouse, Manitou Seed Library who is providing the seeds, and the Manitou Pollinators who is facilitating planting, watering and growing!
A big thank you to all of the partners!
The City of Manitou Springs is teaming up with the Manitou Springs Chamber of Commerce, COSILoveYou, the Business Improvement District, and the Fountain Creek Watershed, Flood Control, and Greenway District to bring you an expanded Creek Week Cleanup event!
Mark your calendars for October 7, 2023, from 9 a.m. to noon. Let's come together and make a difference for our environment. This initiative is all about enhancing our city's environmental stewardship efforts and keeping our waterways clean. We're hitting four key spots along Fountain Creek: Serpentine Drive, Soda Springs Park, Memorial Park, and Schryver Park. It's a massive undertaking, and we need your help! Volunteers will be at the heart of this endeavor, actively removing debris from the creek.
Let's make this cleanup a success! We need YOUR help. The more volunteers we have, the greater impact we'll make. Let's show our commitment to a cleaner, healthier environment.

Due to scheduling conflicts that won’t allow for a “Litter Letter”, the City's cleanup activities will culminate in an independent art piece featured within Manitou Springs City Limits. The collected trash will be transformed into unique artwork, emphasizing the city's creative approach to environmental stewardship.
Please note: during the cleanup a Leave No Trace booth, located at Memorial Park, will be available for volunteers and the public to discover ways to enhance watershed health.
