Pet Waste - Always pick up and dispose of pet waste. Properly disposing of pet waste on campus can prevent pollutants from entering the storm water system and flowing to the Arboretum Waterway and eventually to Putah Creek.
"Dog Doogity" (see right) is a fun video which emphasizes the importance of picking up and properly disposing of pet waste. A parody of the Backstreet song "No Diggity" and it is part of the Puget Sound Starts Here campaign to increase awareness of pet waste on the environment.
