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 5 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.

Venue: ReCity Network in Durham
Durham Creek Week was founded on collaboration. Partnerships developed between, government, citizens, businesses, and non-profits who all care deeply about the state of the creeks and believe that the best way to clean them up is by working together. ReCity Network was founded on the same belief. Now, with 12,000 square feet of space dedicated to co-working, meetings, and community events, the network is a catalyst for good, with members solving problems related to race, gender, wealth, and opportunity. This Bull City social impact hub is a bold venture, serving as a catalyst for innovation and collaboration among non-profits, mission-driven businesses, and faith-based organizations.
