    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 volunteer@tmparksfoundation.org Community Partners Thank you, Healthy Tails, for your donation of 1,000 Dog Bag Leash Dispensers!
