Volunteers sought for Bear Creek Dog Park 'April Stools Day' cleanup April 2
Volunteers are welcome to help clean up the Bear Creek Dog Park in the
annual April Stools Day Saturday, April 2 from 9 a.m. to noon. Buckets, bags and
rubber gloves will be provided for the cleanup, but participants are asked to bring
their own shovels or scoopers.
Escorting the five dogs he brought from
Denver, Rob Pingel opens the second of the entry gates to the Bear Creek Dog
Park earlier this year.
