Please join us for this year’s first volunteer clean-up of our fenced off-leash area.
FIDO sponsors three clean-ups each year with assistance from I Love a Clean San Diego. This is a key program for our ongoing stewardship, and is, unfortunately, always needed. Bring your own gloves and picker-uppers if you have them. Dogs are welcome.
And while you’re there, get ready for the upcoming single-use plastic bag ban! We have new reusable bags with the FIDO logo available for a $2 donation and a $20 donations gets you a FIDO t-shirt.
Think Blue San Diego and I Love A Clean San Diego remind you to Scoop The Poop! San Diego�s 600,000 dogs leave behind an estimated 136 million pounds of poop annually. Pet waste is a leading source of water pollution, and it contains bacteria, viruses and nutrients that can make people sick and harm our environment.
TB and ILACSD will be at Fiesta Island once/month through June to spread the word about the importance of scooping the poop and to pass out free pet waste baggies. Come visit their table and take the pledge to Scoop The Poop and keep San Diego clean and healthy for years to come!
Look for them on the following dates/times:
– Saturday, Feb 7th from 9am – Noon
– Sunday, March 22nd from 1-4pm
– Friday, April 10th from 4-7pm
– Saturday, May 16th from 1-4pm
– Sunday, June 21 from 9am – noon
Ever wondered about the safety of San Diego’s ocean water? Water contamination happens from time to time. For example, today there are warnings about the contamination from the Tijuana River from Seacost Dr. to the border in Imperial Beach, and from the seals at La Jolla Children’s Pool.
They maintain an updated map that shows which coastal areas have healthy water and which are contaminated.
San Diego Parks & Recreation has updated us, these are the Fiesta Island Road Closures scheduled so far in 2015.
The following closures are scheduled between 7 a.m. through 9 a.m.:
- January 4th, 10th, 11th
- February 7th, 21st, 22nd 28th
- March 1st, 14th, 15th, 28th, 29th
*Date and time of closures are subject to change.*
More recent updates may be found at this Parks and Recreation Fiesta Island Road Closures pdf.
Just FYI Park and Rec will be mowing in the Stoney Point area, this Wed, Thurs and Friday. 6 a.m. to Noon. No beach closures but please be careful and let them get their job done. Keep your pups far away from the mowers. Playing pups are hard to see.
FIDO recently met with Park and Rec and one of the items we requested was boxes on the gates where people could place the recycled bags they bring for poop pickup. Park and Rec just installed a mailbox at each gate for this purpose. If you bring recycled grocery or newspaper plastic bags for poop pickup, please place them in the boxes. Please do not tie the bags on the fence.
It is so important that we encourage everyone to pick up after their dogs. It is the major complaint we hear. Hopefully, if you forget to bring a bag you can now grab one out of the box. There are also bags provided by the city that can be used but it will save the city money and hopefully result in people recycling the bags that they may otherwise throw away if we use these.
Let’s all work to make the off-leash area clean!
And a big thank you to Park and Rec Staff for installing the boxes.
