TTF celebrated the Halloween season with an event at Tacony Creek Park for enthusiastic dogs and their owners. We handed out “doggy bags” to residents and led walks down the trail to the creek –the owners and their pups thought the fall colors were amazing!
During the walk, we talked about the importance of cleaning up after dogs in order to keep the creeks clean — during storms, dog waste contributes to stormwater runoff. Learn more about stormwater runoff here.
Special thanks to our partners who helped us to put together our “doggy bags”:
Whole Foods brand dog food, generously donated by Whole Foods Jenkintown.
“I love my Philly Park” sunglasses from Fairmount Park Conservancy.
Doggy Disposal bags and kids activity books from Fairmount Water Works Interpretive Center and The Partnership for the Delaware Estuary.
Information from The Scattergood Foundation and The Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia.
Keep an eye out — we’ll have these great bags at our future events! Send us a photo of you and your dog in the park!
