Woofing Around LA’s Watersheds

Calling all dog owners: keep your pets active this summer by heading to a paw-friendly park in your local watershed! Wait, what’s a watershed you might ask? Simply put, a watershed is an area of land that collects water and redirects it to a river, lake, or ocean. Did you know that any surface street material or stormwater runoff like litter, dog waste, or household hazardous waste spills can flow directly to our rivers, lakes, and oceans? By picking up after ourselves and properly disposing dangerous waste, we can maintain healthy watersheds for everyone to enjoy.

Visit one or all of the major watersheds in LA by taking your pet to a dog park listed below. While you’re at it, become a watershed protector and bring your dog waste bags with you to pick up after your furry friend. Don’t have any bags? We’re to help! Request your FREE dog waste bags today.
