As we get ready to celebrate our City’s 150th anniversary, it’s exciting to reflect on the wonderful gifts that our City’s founder, General William Jackson Palmer, bestowed on us. This includes more than 2,000 acres of incredible parkland – which, 148 years later, still includes some of the most sweeping, majestic views in the world.  Examples of parkland gifts from Palmer include: Alamo, Acacia, Antlers, Monument Valley and Palmer Park.

As we get ready to celebrate our City’s 150th anniversary, it’s exciting to reflect on the wonderful gifts that our City’s founder, General William Jackson Palmer, bestowed on us. This includes more than 2,000 acres of incredible parkland – which, 148 years later, still includes some of the most sweeping, majestic views in the world.  Examples of parkland gifts from Palmer include: Alamo, Acacia, Antlers, Monument Valley and Palmer Park.

Another of Palmer's amazing legacies to our community is our tree-lined city.  When he founded our city in 1871, it was a nearly treeless, arid plain. Palmer changed that by planting thousands of trees in our city. To celebrate our 150th anniversary in 2021 and carry on Palmer’s vision of a tree-lined city, we are challenging the community to help plant 18,071 new trees over the next two years.

In celebration of Arts Month 2021, the Pikes Peak Outdoor Recreation Alliance, Fountain Creek Watershed Flood Control & Greenway District, Creek Week, and the Cultural Office of the Pikes Peak Region have joined forces once again to orchestrate the 4th annual Pikes Peak Litter Letter Project. Each year, our local Litter Letter Project produces a unique piece of sculptural art that is constructed with trash collected from public lands and waterways during Creek Week. Modeled after the national Litter Letter Project, and with permission to use their logo and concept, our local Litter Letter Project is a fun and inspiring annual event that signals the official start of Arts Month. It’s also a wonderful cross-sector collaboration between the Arts, Outdoor Recreation, and Environmental sectors that benefits the entire region!

The community is invited to participate in several clean-up sessions throughout our local trails and lands during National Public Lands Day (Sept. 25) and in coordination with our local Creek Week cleanups (Sept. 25 – Oct. 3). Participants will gather litter at several designated sites and then fill giant letters made from recycled metal that spell a different word each year. Our past words have been INSPIRE (2018), PRISTINE (2019), and RESILIENT (2020). This year’s word is: RESPECT.

Interested in “adopting” a letter to fill with your Creek Week Cleanup Crew? Email creekweeksoco@gmail.com for more information.

The litter letters, constructed by local nonprofit Concrete Couch, will be on display throughout the month of October in celebration of Arts Month. Well-sited on a berm, just off Cimarron Street, east of I-25 and south of America the Beautiful Park, the art piece is also visible from the adjacent trail.

On Friday, October 1st at 4:00PM, just before the start of First Friday, there will be a dedication ceremony for the 2021 Litter Letter art piece. The dedication event is free and open to the public, and will feature brief remarks by project partners and community leaders. Light snacks and refreshments will be provided, as well as live musical entertainment courtesy of the Curbside Culture program.

Following the dedication event, everyone is invited to celebrate the start of Arts Month 2021 by participating in the October First Friday Art Walks from 5-8PM along the Avenue Creative Circuit in Downtown Colorado Springs, Old Colorado City, and Manitou Springs. Throughout the month of October, the local community is also invited to support our Litter Letter Project though a special social media campaign on Instagram, by using the hashtag #PikesPeakLitterLetters to show us how you recreate responsibly, and RESPECT the outdoors.

Media inquiries and questions about the project should be directed to Andy Vick at andy@CulturalOffice.org.

As we get ready to celebrate our City’s 150th anniversary, it’s exciting to reflect on the wonderful gifts that our City’s founder, General William Jackson Palmer, bestowed on us. This includes more than 2,000 acres of incredible parkland – which, 148 years later, still includes some of the most sweeping, majestic views in the world.  Examples of parkland gifts from Palmer include: Alamo, Acacia, Antlers, Monument Valley and Palmer Park.

As we get ready to celebrate our City’s 150th anniversary, it’s exciting to reflect on the wonderful gifts that our City’s founder, General William Jackson Palmer, bestowed on us. This includes more than 2,000 acres of incredible parkland – which, 148 years later, still includes some of the most sweeping, majestic views in the world.  Examples of parkland gifts from Palmer include: Alamo, Acacia, Antlers, Monument Valley and Palmer Park.

Another of Palmer's amazing legacies to our community is our tree-lined city.  When he founded our city in 1871, it was a nearly treeless, arid plain. Palmer changed that by planting thousands of trees in our city. To celebrate our 150th anniversary in 2021 and carry on Palmer’s vision of a tree-lined city, we are challenging the community to help plant 18,071 new trees over the next two years.

In celebration of Arts Month 2021, the Pikes Peak Outdoor Recreation Alliance, Fountain Creek Watershed Flood Control & Greenway District, Creek Week, and the Cultural Office of the Pikes Peak Region have joined forces once again to orchestrate the 4th annual Pikes Peak Litter Letter Project. Each year, our local Litter Letter Project produces a unique piece of sculptural art that is constructed with trash collected from public lands and waterways during Creek Week. Modeled after the national Litter Letter Project, and with permission to use their logo and concept, our local Litter Letter Project is a fun and inspiring annual event that signals the official start of Arts Month. It’s also a wonderful cross-sector collaboration between the Arts, Outdoor Recreation, and Environmental sectors that benefits the entire region!

The community is invited to participate in several clean-up sessions throughout our local trails and lands during National Public Lands Day (Sept. 25) and in coordination with our local Creek Week cleanups (Sept. 25 – Oct. 3). Participants will gather litter at several designated sites and then fill giant letters made from recycled metal that spell a different word each year. Our past words have been INSPIRE (2018), PRISTINE (2019), and RESILIENT (2020). This year’s word is: RESPECT.

Interested in “adopting” a letter to fill with your Creek Week Cleanup Crew? Email creekweeksoco@gmail.com for more information.

The litter letters, constructed by local nonprofit Concrete Couch, will be on display throughout the month of October in celebration of Arts Month. Well-sited on a berm, just off Cimarron Street, east of I-25 and south of America the Beautiful Park, the art piece is also visible from the adjacent trail.

On Friday, October 1st at 4:00PM, just before the start of First Friday, there will be a dedication ceremony for the 2021 Litter Letter art piece. The dedication event is free and open to the public, and will feature brief remarks by project partners and community leaders. Light snacks and refreshments will be provided, as well as live musical entertainment courtesy of the Curbside Culture program.

Following the dedication event, everyone is invited to celebrate the start of Arts Month 2021 by participating in the October First Friday Art Walks from 5-8PM along the Avenue Creative Circuit in Downtown Colorado Springs, Old Colorado City, and Manitou Springs. Throughout the month of October, the local community is also invited to support our Litter Letter Project though a special social media campaign on Instagram, by using the hashtag #PikesPeakLitterLetters to show us how you recreate responsibly, and RESPECT the outdoors.

Media inquiries and questions about the project should be directed to Andy Vick at andy@CulturalOffice.org.
