Let's DOO It! Campaign

Lets Doo ItLet's DOO It! EPRD Promotes Dog Waste Disposal

Evergreen Park & Rec District is joining Jeffco Open Space and City of Lakewood to encourage people to clean up after their pets through the “Let’s DOO It!” educational campaign. Here’s why:
   •   Poop smells bad, ruins the experience of other park visitors, and is a terrible waste of scenery!
   •   Dog waste doesn’t break down like wild animal waste. Left alone, it fouls the water and land.
   •   Dog waste can contain such harmful organisms as E. coli, giardia, salmonella, roundworms, hookworms and cryptosporidium, which can be passed on to people and other pets.

So the “Let DOO It!” campaign has been launched, with “Let’s DOO It!” magnets on trashcans, signs at trailheads, social media posts, Smelly Facts cards, and in-person visitor engagement. Jeffco Open Space interns have even created a short video (below) to encourage people to clean up after pets. EPRD parks employees will be handing out plastic bag containers shaped like dog bones, which can be attached to leashes for easy access. Learn more.
