Caring for Parks

Special Events - Scoop the Poop

Calling all dog owners!
It's not something we enjoy doing, but it's something us dog owners have to do. Pick up our dog's waste. Many dog owners regularly fail to pick up after their pets, however, leaving us with quite a mess. Dog waste is not only a health concern due to the bacteria it contains, but also contributes to some very unpleasant experiences for park and foothills users. We're sure that everyone can imagine the stories.

To help keep Boise's parks dog waste free, Boise Parks and Recreation is hosting a clean up of our community's parks and trails on Saturday, March 21, 2020. Participants will be provided trash bags and rubber gloves, but will need to provide their own shovel.

Dog lovers of all stripes are welcome to participate, whether you own a dog or not. You can form your own team or we can try to team you up with others.

Volunteers must review the City of Boise Volunteer Handbook to participate.

Qualifications Required

  • Volunteer Handbook Review Must be Complete
