This is pretty neat: a new nonprofit called 11th and Bark dedicated to its eponymous dog park has organized a cleanup of the park this Saturday from noon to 2 pm. The park could use some attention after the snow and such, and it sounds like a fun way to meet neighbors and other dog owners.
Here's more about 11th and Bark:
