Intro to Creek Week

Creek Week is a week-long celebration of local waters throughout North Carolina. Rowan County's first-ever Creek Week took place August 17-24, 2019. In conjunction with multiple environmental organizations and local municipal departments, Creek Week offered recreational, educational, and volunteer opportunities to allow everyone the opportunity to enjoy and contribute to healthy waters in their area. 

Creek Week Events

From guided hikes, kayak trips, and stream clean-ups to DIY workshops, historical presentations, and animal programs, each event is an opportunity to educate residents and to build awareness around the importance of our water resources.
