The third annual Creek Week, returning March 14 - 22, will be our best Creek Week ever, offering many fun new activities and returning favorites. New activities include stand-up paddleboarding lessons and a Salem Lake tour, Salem Lake Trail rides on Segway personal transporters, bike rides on creekside greenways, water trivia nights at Foothills Brewing and River Ridge Tap House, and an entertaining, fun and family-friendly fishing clinic suitable for all ages.

Encore activities include last year’s popular tour of historic Old Salem sites along Salem Creek, guided creekside bird-watching expeditions, entertaining guest speakers, Operation Medicine Drop, brown-bag “lunch-and-learn” opportunities and The Great American Cleanup.

These activities -- like everything offered during Creek Week -- are all designed to help us draw the connection between local waterways and our quality of life! Join us!
