Our Mission

The Creek Week cleanup aims to bring the Fountain Creek Watershed communities together to foster the health of our local waterways for its citizens and wildlife alike.


A watershed is a region that drains into a river, river system, or other body of water. John Wesley Powell, the 19th century geologist and explorer, described a watershed as:that area of land, a bounded hydrologic system, within which all living things are inextricably linked by their common water course and where, as humans settled, simple logic demanded that they become part of a community.
