Learn & Engage

The Fountain Creek Brewshed® Alliance is a program of the Fountain Creek Watershed Flood Control and Greenway District. The Alliance’s goal is to engage citizens in conversations and actions that will lead to water protection and enhancement. The group consists of water resource and craft brewing industry professionals connecting our communities to the shared values of healthy watersheds and locally made beer through education and events. Email us for more info or to get involved with the Alliance:

The first Brewshed® Alliance was established in 2012 in Washington State. Oregon and Idaho followed. Fountain Creek Brewshed® Alliance is the first in Colorado, working throughout the Fountain Creek Watershed (Palmer Lake to Pueblo.)

Legacy Loop is an approximately 10 mile trail, park and recreation loop around downtown Colorado Springs defined by the Pikes Peak Greenway on the west and south, the Shooks Run trail on the east, and the Rock Island Corridor to the north.  It is a way to connect, create, and protect our community value, inspired by the legacy and vision of Colorado Springs’ founder General William Jackson Palmer. Palmer’s dream was of a vibrant, livable city where the essential functions of mobility and access are linked to our parks, open space and trails.
