Believe it or not, spring is here and it’s time to mark your calendars for the Town’s annual Spring Up the Creek event.
This year’s event will be from 8:30 to 11 a.m. on Saturday, May 6.
Spring Up the Creek brings volunteers together to beautify our community by removing trash along the trails near Plum Creek. Your donation of time will provide cleaner water quality for one of Castle Rock’s renewable water supplies.
Having a cleaner creek means a healthier environment for our wildlife and reduces water purification costs at the Town’s treatment plants. The Town hosts this event in partnership with Douglas County, Castle Pines Metro District, Plum Creek Water Reclamation Authority and the Chatfield Watershed Authority.
Ready to pitch in? Visit CRgov.com/SpringUp to register to help out on a specific trail. There are 11 trails to choose from, including a new option in the Cobblestone Ranch Park area. Volunteers will be provided with gloves, hand sanitizer, trash bags, pooper scoopers and other cleanup materials. Snacks and water will also be available at the trailheads.
All ages are welcome. This event is a great opportunity to fulfill community service hours. Online registration and a completed waiver are required prior to the event. More information, including registration and maps of the cleanup routes, is available at CRgov.com/SpringUp.
