1. Who puts on creek week?

Creek Week is a nation-wide movement put on by many municipalities.  Guilford Creek Week was organized by a small council of representatives from stormwater and waste reduction from Greensboro, Guilford County, High Point, and the NC Extension office and was executed with the help of countless kind volunteers throughout those municipalities, private businesses and concerned citizens. 

2.  What events at Guilford Creek Week can I attend?

On the calendar of events, if it is listed as open to the public, you are free to go.  If it is listed as a closed event or in support of Guilford Creek Week, then you must be involved with that organization or group prior to the event.

3. Can my kids come?

Most of the events are open to all ages.  There are some where there might be an age restriction because of the possible conditions that present at stream cleanups. If you are unsure or the event us unclearly designated, please feel free to e-mail us at guilfordcreekweek@gmail.com
