April 20th, 2019 | 9 – Noon 

Join us on Saturday, April 20th, 2019, for the Granite Creek Cleanup. This family-friendly annual event has removed over 47 tons of trash from our area creeks, lakes, and trails since Prescott Creeks began hosting it in 2007. This year we expect to cover more miles and pull out even more trash, making the Prescott area a more beautiful, safe place for everyone to enjoy.

Start the morning with signing in, getting a map, t-shirt, bags, snack, and coffee. Then head to the creeks and get a bit dirty tidying things up. Share the day, and celebrate our creeks and surrounding wild places, with your friends and neighbors. Granite Creek Cleanup: making clean creeks fun for everyone. Please send us your pictures!

Registered participants receive a FREE event t-shirt, snacks, and coffee. We’ll have water available to fill your personal water bottles from home.

2019 Granite Creek Cleanup Sponsorship

Over 500 friends, neighbors, and businesses join together to clean up our creeks, lakes and trails, and to celebrate our community’s waterways and natural places. As the Cleanup continues to grow in popularity and scope, sponsorship support from community members like you is critical to getting the job done. The Cleanup is brought to you this year by primary sponsor Mandalay Homes and organizing partners Prescott Creeks and the City of Prescott.

Cleanup Background:

The Granite Creek Cleanup originated in the mid to late 1980s and was sponsored by Keep Prescott Beautiful – a City-sponsored committee. In 2006 the Keep Prescott Beautiful committee asked Prescott Creeks to take on the responsibility for organizing the Granite Creek Cleanup. We immediately agreed and are now in our 13th year of sponsoring the event.

From 2007 to 2018, 5,400 volunteers have removed 47.3 tons of trash and debris from local creeks. All these volunteers contributed labor valued at $217,000 toward the beautification of City of Prescott and the Granite Creek Watershed. An additional $80,000 of value has been realized through event sponsors.

The Granite Creek Cleanup is a great opportunity for families and children, groups, and individuals to make a difference! Working together, we can all control pollution, protect nature, and ensure a healthy creek system for future generations.
