Goose Management Volunteer Call

The Rockford Park District’s Goose Management Program is seeking volunteers and their dogs.

We are looking for people to walk their dogs at different parks, harassing geese. The dog’s presence makes the geese uncomfortable and they then do not want to stay there and nest.

The next few months are very important because the geese are able to fly again after molting and will soon be migrating. Along with patrolling different parks volunteers can participate in different events educating the public about the program and why it is bad to feed the geese and other waterfowl.

The program looks for herding dogs and similar look alike breeds, it also offers flexibility with your schedule. If you are interested in the program you can contact Faye Burlo at This email address is being protected from spambots.
