Randolph Creek Week is made possible by the board of Keep Randolph County Beautiful (KRCB), a collaboration of local governments and organizations in Randolph County. KRCB organizes regular litter cleanups around the County, hosts Shred Day, e-Waste & hazardous waste collection days, awards small grants to local stewards, and conducts litter surveys of trash hot spots around the county. KRCB relies on the dedication, caring, and stewardship of people just like you to make a difference in the quality of life here in Randolph County. If you would like to attend a meeting, inquire about serving on the board, or obtain other information about KRCB, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Before, during, and after Creek Week, there is a lot we can all do to protect our drinking water, creeks and wildlife that live in and near these waterways and water bodies. Use the buttons below to find additional resources to explain how clean water starts with YOU and ME!
