The annual volunteer spring cleanup will be held on Saturday, March 27 from 8 a.m. to noon at local dog exercise parks in Madison and the surrounding communities.
"The spring cleanup is a great event for local dog owners to support their favorite dog parks while socializing with fellow dog-lovers," said Parks Superintendant Kevin Briski. "As always, we are pleased to be partnering with Dane County parks in this effort and the dog park program."
Volunteers are asked to bring a scooper to the park where they will be met by a team leader with garbage bags. Those interested in serving as team leaders for the cleanup should contact Dog Park Cleanup Coordinator Pete Blawat at (608) 516-8057.
Participating parks include those in the City of Madison (Warner, Quann, Brittingham and Sycamore), Dane County (Badger Prairie, Indian Lake, Prairie Moraine-Tower Site, Yahara Heights, Token Creek and Viking), Sun Prairie Pet Exercise Area and the Middleton Dog Park located on Hwy Q.
