The Environmental and Natural Resource Issues (ENRI) Task Force is part of the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture Cooperative Extension Service.  It was formed to identify emerging issues potentially affecting the environment or impacting natural resources and to develop programming to educate our urban and rural audiences.  

Current Projects

Image of dog and text encouraging owners to Bag the Doo

Our current project with LFUCG is to encourage pet owners to pick up after their pet on walks and at home.  This helps keep our parks and neighborhoods clean and reduces risk of pathogen exposure to pets and people.  In urban areas, it is also an important part of improving water quality in our streams. Show that Lexington cares about water quality and Take the Pledge - Bag the Doo!  

Why is it so important to Bag the Doo?

Thanks to our partners for helping to spread the word:

Lexington Humane Society - Pet Wants - Bluegrass Barkery - Most Valuable Pets - Hollywood Feed - Hickmann Creek Conservancy - Friends of Wolf Run... and everyone who took the pledge and is doing their part to keep Lexington streams clean!

This project is funded by LFUCG Stormwater Quality Projects Incentive Grant Program
