[ARCHIVED] Become a force for nature; Town hosts annual Spring Up the Creek event May 4

Be a force for nature. Spring Up the Creek, May the 4th, 2019 at Festival Park.

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away there was a team of volunteers who started cleaning up trash from areas of East Plum Creek and Sellars Gulch. That tradition continues with the Town’s annual Spring Up the Creek event set for Saturday, May the 4th.

Make sure the force is with you, and join the Town from 8 to 11:30 a.m. at Festival Park. Volunteers are needed to clean up areas of East Plum Creek and Sellars Gulch. Registration begins at 8 a.m., with the clean up running from 9 to 11 a.m. A small vendor fair will take place following the clean up.

The annual event helps keep the community’s water clean and promotes the importance of protecting the environment. The Town hosts this event in partnership with Douglas County, Castle Pines Metro District, Plum Creek Water Reclamation Authority and the Chatfield Watershed Authority.

“This annual event is a real benefit to our community’s drinking water supply,” said Director of Castle Rock Water Mark Marlowe. “As Castle Rock moves to a more renewable water supply, protecting our drinking water sources is increasingly important.”

Do, or do not. There is no try. Volunteers will be given gloves, bags and possible transportation to different area creeks and trails in need of a spruce up.

Preregister at However, preregistration is not required. Last-minute volunteers are welcome the day of the event. Teens looking for community service hours should bring a community service waiver already signed by their parents.

Don’t miss out on breakfast burritos, coffee and a free T-shirt (while supplies last) provided to all participants. In case of bad weather, the event will be held Saturday, May 18.
