Doggie Ambassadors are volunteers who help keep dog waste bags dispensers in our parks and open spaces stocked dog waste bags! Through the work of volunteers, community members will now have access to free dog waste bags at Truckee Meadows’ parks. As dog waste bags are distributed, we will work to reduce the amount of dog waste in our parks, open spaces, and the Truckee River watershed.
