“You can make a difference to our environment by being a responsible pet owner. Be prepared. Carry bags with you to pick up pet waste. It’s a good idea to carry a few extras with you in case you meet someone in need. Collect your pet’s poop in a bag and deposit it in a trash can. Do NOT leave bags on the side of trails—there isn’t anyone designated to pick them up! Routinely pick up your pet’s waste (or hire someone to do so) so you’re not contributing to decreased downstream water quality.” — Keep It Clean Partnership
