Pledge to Scoop the Poop!

Many people may not realize pet waste that is left on the ground
can get washed into storm drains, which lead directly to our local streams and rivers. Pet waste contains bacteria and parasitic organisms that, when washed into local waterways, can contaminate streams and rivers.

Pledge to do your part to help keep our local waterways clean and healthy by picking up after your favorite furry friend!
