Clean Up Day – Dog Run, September 16th at 8:00 am

This Sunday, September 16th, is our next clean up day. We are a 100% community/volunteer-run space. That means that the condition and cleanliness of the dog run is up to us.

We will plan to start at 8:00 and will work till ~2pm. Please come for as long as you are able to help — every little bit of shared effort makes a big difference! We will have water and snacks for volunteers, but please feel free to bring whatever you need: work gloves, tough shoes, good attitude.

We ask that you leave your dogs at home during this time as the gates and fencing will be open and there will be shovels, rakes, and other tools that may frighten or harm a curious K-9 friend.

Get updates and reminders when you join the Facebook Event.
