Forsyth Creek Week
March 14-22, 2014

Forsyth Creek Week is a full week of fun, educational and hands-on opportunities to discover, explore, and help our local waterways. Forsyth County Cooperative Extension will be participating in Forsyth Creek Week with rain barrel workshops and lectures on aquatic critters that tell a story as well as innovative ways to solve runoff issues. Creek Week’s goal is to connect Forsyth County residents with our local waterways through a variety of activities. This week-long observance will provide opportunities for them to discover and explore local streams through educational programs, recreational activities, and a volunteer service project. The objective of all of these opportunities is to help residents learn more about their own connections and impacts on our local waterways. Learn more about creek week and other activities taking place throughout Forsyth County. Forsyth Creek Week is a county-wide initiative organized by the City of Winston-Salem Stormwater/Erosion Control Division, Forsyth County Parks & Recreation, Forsyth County Cooperative Extension, Town of Kernersville, Village of Clemmons, Forsyth Audubon, Forsyth County Environmental Assistance and Protection, Forsyth County Public Libraries, the Gateway Environmental Initiative, Keep Winston-Salem Beautiful, Old Salem Museums & Gardens, the Sierra Club Foothills Chapter, and the Yadkin Riverkeeper.
