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.

8:30 to 11 a.m.
Backup date: Saturday, May 14
The 2022 event is currently in the planning stages and we anticipate the format of this event to be the same as in 2021. 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. We do not anticipate children's activities or community booths for the 2022 event.
Online registration with a completed waiver is required prior to the event and will be available soon.
8:30 to 9 a.m. - Registration
9 to 11 a.m. - Clean Up
