This year Wild Ideas for Clean Creeks will help to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Durham Creek Week, a time to discover and clean up our local streams. Creek Week is a collaboration between the organizations, government departments, businesses, and citizens that help protect Durham’s watersheds and drinking water. At Wild Ideas for Clean Creeks you’ll hear from 6 speakers about some of the ongoing initiatives and ideas that are cleaning up our creeks, conserving the land that filters our water, and planning for tomorrow. Talk one on one with the people making it happen during the Creek Week Expo and find out how you can get involved!
