Capitol Hill Parks Public Notice
Rats are a concern in some of the Capitol Hill Parks.
To address the problem the National Park Service has taken various actions at a number of the sites to address rat-attracting habitat and cover as well as food and water sources.
In some Capitol Hill Parks the National Park Service has rat baiting efforts underway that treat active rat burrows with approved rodenticides.
You can assist the National Park Service in our rat management efforts by:
Not feeding birds and squirrels (Feeding wildlife is not only illegal, inevitably the leftovers attract and feed rats).
Removing pet wastes by placing it in sealed bags prior to tossing in trash cans.
Promptly removing any lunch or other food and placing waste in trash cans.
Keeping children and pets away from rat burrows.
Sharing these tips with your neighbors.
We appreciate your understanding and cooperation in this effort.
