Due to the Stay at Home Order and the need for social distancing, we had to make the difficult decision to cancel our events for Creek Week 2020. We will be back in 2021!
In the meantime, we have created an educational scavenger hunt for parents and children to perform in their neighborhoods to get to know their stormwater system. Please click on the images below to access our scavenger hunt and Click Here to watch our educational video to go along with the activity!
