As the partial government shutdown enters its third week, citizen groups around the country are pitching in to help keep parks open and functioning. America’s National Parks and Recreational Areas are being hit hard during the government’s partial shutdown, with reports of overflowing trash and waste, unmonitored bad behavior and safety issues as a result of furloughed park staff. As our government inaction rages on in Washington, D.C., some local dog groups are picking up the mantle and filling the void.
