Scoop the Poop

Sponsored by Boise Parks and Recreation

Saturday, March 10 from 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Dog and owner


Heads up dog owners! The snow is melting and warmer days are ahead. That means more people will be out enjoying Boise’s beautiful parks and trails, and it also means we need your help to clean up the not so pretty poop your pets have left behind all winter long. Pet waste that hasn’t been picked up can be a source of bacteria that can negatively impact the water in the Boise River. It can carry disease and bacteria and if not disposed of can make for a very unpleasant experience for hikers, bikers and park users.

To combat this increasing problem, we invite you to rally your fellow dog owners to clean up your favorite trail or park on Saturday, March 10. Locations will be assigned to volunteers on a first come, first serve basis. Trash bags will be provided upon request.
