Pick it up, pack it out and can it!
Jeffco Open Space, The City of Lakewood, Foothills Park & Recreation District and Evergreen Park & Recreation District have partnered on Let’s Doo It!, a campaign to unspoil the views, protect the environment and increase public safety. Let’s Doo It! is all about outreach and education around the importance of picking up after your pet, utilizing signage, outreach and other smelly facts to promote the proper disposal of dog waste in our parks and on our trails.
Area residents will see the Let’s Doo It! rallying cry emblazoned on signage, vehicles, and dog waste dispensers encouraging park users to pick it up, pack it out, and most importantly, ensure it ends up in a trash can. “Dog waste being left by people is a prevalent problem in all our parks, and becoming more so with the population growth we’re seeing,” said Katie Matthews, communications supervisor with Jeffco Open Space. “More and more people are bringing dogs, which means more park usage.”
The Let’s Doo It! council welcomes public and private pawtners from all over Colorado to grow an army of advocates committed to sparkling clean, poo-free parks, because pet owners should pick up after their dogs—every time, no matter what.
