I am writing to express my concern about the lack of ways to responsibly dispose of litter and dog poop in Look Park.

My wife and I, along with our dogs, are almost daily walkers in the park. We are members. We enjoy the main roads and the trails through the woods. All winter we carried bags to pick up trash we found along the way. With warmer weather, the mess is escalating, and we’ve become discouraged by the park’s seeming lack of concern.

Emails and phone calls to the folks who manage the park have gone unacknowledged. We ran into a staff member a few weeks ago and learned that there is no plan to replace the many, many trash receptacles that are now piled in a staging area at the edge of the park. That worker did not know why that decision had been made.

This may seem like a small complaint in the face of so many larger issues today, but I can’t help but think that doing everything we can to care for our little corner of the Earth matters.
