In partnership with the Gallatin River Task Force – we will host a community-wide dog-waste cleanup. Excess dog waste can pollute our sensitive water resources, contaminating surface and groundwater. By picking up after our dogs, we can do our part to protect our beloved Gallatin while still enjoying our local trail systems with our canine companions.
This year, in light of social-distancing restrictions, we will be adjusting the cleanup to discourage gathering. We will run the cleanup for two full days, starting at 3pm on Friday, April 24 and ending at 3pm on Sunday, April 26. Participants will still be eligible for prizes, and to encourage ongoing stewardship, we will be launching an engagement campaign on social media as well. Look for our Runoff Cleanoff bingo board on Instagram April 24. To win, tag us using #doodiecalls and/or #runoffcleanoff when you fill out your board. You’re also entered if you post a picture of yourself or your family scooping poop. Prizes include Task Force swag and giveaways from BSCO. A special grand prize from Osprey packs will be awarded to the individual who collects the most poop!
If you have questions, email communications manager David Tucker at firstname.lastname@example.org.

We are always looking at opportunities to increase parklands and open spaces while further developing public recreation amenities.
Celebrating the 4th of July with our annual 5K road race is one of our favorite events! We'll hold our in-person race starting at 9:00 am in the Big Sky Community Park. Immediately following the 5K will be a free kids obstacle course.
