Help us pick up litter along our adopted portion of Monument Creek.
In the spring, we partner with the Keep America Beautiful Great American Cleanup: Pikes Peak Partners. In the fall, we join the Fountain Creek Watershed Flood Control and Greenway District's Creek Week Cleanup.
Saturday, October 3, from 9 am - 12 pm (register for a one-hour slot)
Goose Gossage Park at 3950 Mark Dabling Blvd, Colorado Springs, CO 80907 (look for yard signs point to the staging location)
Creek Cleanups are open to the public. We welcome your family, friends, and classmates. All youth/child volunteers aged 8 years through 17 years must be supervised by a responsible adult aged twenty-one (21) years or older, with a ratio of one adult per four (4) youth/children. One adult must be paired with one child under the age of 8 at all times.
To ensure we have enough staffing and supplies, please complete a separate registration for everyone in your group using our SignUp Genius page. For your safety, we are limiting groups to 15 volunteers per hour.
The Office of Sustainability invites you to create art from reused materials at home (no experience necessary). Use your resourcefulness and creativity skills as you take one hour to two weeks to make trash art. We challenge you, PPCC students, to look at trash differently, seeing beauty and potential where there is waste. Your artwork could win 1st Place and $100 Bookstore Gift Voucher.
Watch video demonstrations on how to create trash art. See the videos below or visit our Facebook pages and YouTube Channel Trash Art Hour Playlist.
