Granite Creek Cleanup
Thank you to everyone who can out and volunteered, or supported the Granite Creek Cleanup on Saturday, April 20, 2013. Prescott Creeks has been hosting the annual Granite Creek Cleanup since 2007. The Cleanup is an important part of keeping Prescott beautiful. This is a truly unique event where hundreds of people of all ages come together to remove many tons of trash from our creeks and lakes.
Since taking on the annual Granite Creek Cleanup volunteers have removed 35 Tons of waste from our local water ways. The trash comes in many forms; from tire to bags, water bottles to water heaters. Each year we have seen participation grown as the community comes together to make Prescott a better place for everyone.
An additional 6 Tons of materials have been upcycled into art or construction applicaitons.
Starting in 2011 Prescott Creeks expanded the Cleanup to include upcycled art. One Man's Treasure is an upcycled art show and auction that has helped to support the Granite Creek Cleanup and moved into the schools using environmental literacy through art as a way to teach students about their creeks.
