Better ground means taking important stewardship actions at home and in our communities to create healthy soil and water, to provide healthy food, and to conserve land, water, forests, wildlife and related natural resources. And you don’t have to go at it alone. You have a partner, your local conservation district.

King Conservation District

Kirkland, WA - Government
Visitors to Juanita Beach Park may notice hundreds of yellow flags dotting the park. Each yellow flag shows where un-scooped dog poop was left in the park over the past month. The south Juanita Beach waterfront totaled 66 un-scooped piles 💩, while the North side of Juanita Beach Park totaled 105 piles 💩😟

As part of a research effort funded by King Conservation District, City staff have been monitoring and counting un-scooped dog waste to see if these numbers decline after the installation of new pet waste stations and the start of a new outreach campaign launching this week. These efforts aim to protect our creeks, streams, and lakes from dog poop bacteria pollution that can spread disease to people, pets, and wildlife.

This is a BRILLIANT idea! All those yellow flags make a great visual of the collective impact of leaving just one un-scooped pile.

Take the parks away from them, if they can't respect them...
