    Only You Can Toss Your Dog's Poo! Protecting the Truckee River Watershed In addition to the unpleasant experience it creates for park-goers, dog waste poses a significant risk to environmental and human health! Why should we clean up dog waste? Every time it rains or snow melts, dog waste is washed into drains and storm sewers. The waste, full of unhealthy bacteria, flows with the stormwater directly into ponds, lakes, and rivers. In high enough quantities, the bacteria and parasites found in dog waste cause bodies of water to become unsafe for recreation activities like swimming and fishing. 1/4 How Can You Help? Get More Stations Near You! ​In 2021, the Doggie Ambassador Project distributed 580,000 dog waste bags. This n umber increased from 461,400 waste bags in 2020. ​ Each of these bags distributed represents dog waste that was picked up and prevented from entering the Truckee River watershed! ​ A gift of $500 will install a new dog waste station, and supply it with 2 years worth of bags! Any amount helps this ongoing project, so please give what you can. The pups thank you in advance! Donate Now Become A Doggie Ambassador! The Doggie Ambassador Project comprises 80 waste stations across 51 parks, trails, and open spaces in Reno, Sparks, and Washoe County. These numbers continue to grow!​ ​ ​ Join the 70 current volunteers today, and help replenish these essential supplies at dog waste stations in your local parks and open spaces! ​ For Current Doggie Ambassadors: Recurring Bag Distribution Idlewild Park: Wed-Thurs 10:00-3:00 pm Rosewood Nature Study Area: Tues-Sat 9:00-4:00 pm Volunteer Find a Station Near You Questions? Comments? Concerns? Contact Community Partners Thank you, Healthy Tails, for your donation of 1,000 Dog Bag Leash Dispensers! Thank you, Natural Paws of Galena and the Storm Water Permit Coordinating Committee for your help with repeated donations of dog waste bags for the Doggie Ambassador Project!

  • Truckee Meadows Nature Study Area | tmparksfoundation

    Rosewood Nature Study Area The vision of the Truckee Meadows Nature Study Area is to establish and steward a publicly accessible Great Basin wetland habitat where the community can come to learn about and appreciate the importance of our natural open spaces and local parks. ​Project Goals Develop a sustainable plan to restore and conserve sensitive wetland and upland habitat for native plants, wildlife, and natural resource management. Rehabilitate existing trails and develop additional non-motorized trails to establish the wetland as a node in the larger network of area parks and open spaces. Offer a state of the art, environmentally conscious nature center with hands-on, interactive exhibits for both children and adults to provide park-based programs, interpretive signage, and outdoor classroom spaces for families, community groups, and schools. Inspire community members to take a proactive volunteer role in the preservation and improvement of our parks and open spaces in order to strengthen the bond between the community and their open spaces. Donate to the Wetland Restoration Project Restoration Progress Status As of August 2020, the first operational year of restoration has been completed. In this first year, we have improved 47 acres through invasive removal and native revegetation, 11,000 linear feet of streambank have been improved, one mile of trail has been enhanced, and both bridges have been repaired. We are now moving into our second year of the restoration project. Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram and check back here for updates.
