Pick It Up!
Pet waste left behind by our furry friends is a huge contributor of both the nutrients that pollute our freshwater ponds and the bacteria that can make our beaches unsafe for swimming. If you live in Warwick, you live upstream from Warwick Pond or the many streams that lead to Narragansett Bay. Pick up your pet's waste and dispose of it with your trash every time, and even when your pet goes in your own backyard. This simple step can make a big difference for Warwick Pond, Oakland Beach, and all of Warwick's waters.
