The Adopt-a-Creek program is an opportunity for your group to participate in creek improvement projects throughout Roseville. It’s a great way for schools, community organizations and companies to affirm their dedication to a clean healthy watershed and the wildlife living there.
Roseville creeks are a valuable natural resource. In addition to providing flood protection and stormwater drainage, they provide vital habitat for wildlife, and enhance our neighborhoods as well as our quality of life.
Our creeks are unique in that they host significant salmon and steelhead spawning grounds. To protect these wild urban spaces, our creeks need on-going care and maintenance. Even though the City works hard to maintain the health of our creeks, we cannot do it alone. We need your help. Adopt a creek and help sustain the health and beauty of our local creeks.

For your convenience, your group may select your project dates and times, however all work must be approved by the City prior to beginning.
Adoption is granted for 1 year and must be renewed prior to the expiration date. Participating groups will be required to complete a minimum of two improvement projects per year. All projects must be reviewed by Adopt-a-Creek staff to ensure feasibility. Currently projects may include trash pickup and invasive plant removal. However, if more complex projects such as tree planting or creek restoration are proposed, additional review and oversight by City Staff or other state and federal agencies may be required. Adopting parties must give notice to the Adopt-a-Creek program a minimum of 14 days prior to commencement of work.
We look forward to working with your organization to improve Roseville creeks and open space. We hope this experience will be meaningful to you and your membership. The City certainly appreciates your involvement and commitment to our creeks.
