Kick off Creek Week with a scavenger hunt Saturday afternoon, March 16 in Gold Park. 

From 2 to 3 p.m., kids and adults are invited to find stormwater-themed scavenger hunt clues in Gold Park, 415 Dimmocks Mill Road. Turn in the completed sheet for a chance to take home a free rain barrel. 

In addition to the scavenger hunt, participants can: 

  • Drive the stormwater camera. 
  • Check out the Public Works Division’s mini excavator. 
  • Talk with Tree Board volunteers about removing invasive plants. 
  • Take home information about managing stormwater on private property. 
  • Get your questions answered by Stormwater and Environmental Services Manager Terry Hackett. 
  • Learn more about the town’s stormwater management.  

Creek Week 2024 will be celebrated regionally March 16-23. Look for a news release in early March for other events in Orange County.
