The Montrose Dog Friendly Area Committee, often referred to as the Board, consists of a group of dedicated volunteers who are committed to the MonDog Mission. Our primary focus is to help make the Montrose Dog Friendly Area at the beach stay fun, clean and safe. To this end, the Board organizes several activities such as beach cleanups, fund raisers for purchasing cleaning supplies and dog waste bags, and fun events. Board members also try to remind dog owners who use the beach to follow the etiquette and always cleanup after their dog. As the Park District sign says, there is no poop fairy.
MONDOG is the Park Advisory Council for Montrose Dog Beach under the Friends of the Parks.
The Chicago Park District takes care of the larger maintenance items such as providing refuse containers and emptying them, cleaning the beach with the “beach zamboni”, and relocating sand.
Individuals interested in participating more should contact the Board by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org or by participating in one of our events.
