Dozens of volunteers are part of Bend's geese hazing program and they feel they're making a difference in decreasing the geese population.  Ernie Gilpin is one of those volunteers.  He and his dog "Flame" go to area parks and chase the geese away to prevent them from leaving droppings on the grass.  “And I personally can tell you that its better.  Compared to five years ago, the grass is pretty clear.  If you remember three to four years ago, the poop was everywhere.”  Parks and Rec officials reassured geese lovers that they do not intend to euthanize any geese this year.  They believe the hazing program and oiling the eggs to prevent them from hatching are keeping the geese population down.

Most organizations are asking for cash, rather than supplies, so they can route help to where it’s needed most more quickly. Here are some of the largest groups with campaigns underway:
