In an effort to get parks ready for a one-year pilot program allowing dogs off-leash, Logan City staff are asking for help from volunteers.
Starting Monday, the city is hosting several “poop troop” cleanup events to remove dog feces that may already be in the approved parks and trails.
Logan City Council members recently passed an ordinance allowing dogs off-leash in seven city parks. The one-year dog friendly park pilot program begins April 15th.
Volunteers are asked to bring their own shovels.
The times, dates and locations of these events are as follows:
Monday, March 18
Canyon Road Canal Trail
Meet in Herm’s Inn Parking Lot
Tuesday, March 19
Stewart Nature Park Trail
Meet at Stewart Nature Park Kiosk
Wednesday, March 20
Logan River Trail
Meet in Rendezvous Park Parking Lot
Thursday, March 21
Lundstrom Park Canal Trail
Meet at Lundstrom Park Pavilion
Saturday, March 23
Bonneville Shoreline Trail
Meet at the Canyon Entrance Park
In addition to the clean up, city leaders are launching a public awareness campaign intended to educate and encourage dog owners to be responsible while in parks. Bag dispensers, garbage cans and signage will also be placed in approved parks.
