Learn about the history and science of dog poo with a day of activities hosted by the National Poo Museum and the University of Liverpool. Dog mess is a major public health concern in the United Kingdom and beyond. It provokes feelings of disgust and raises questions about cleanliness and civility in the city. Through fun and interactive games, pooetry readings, a dog poo poster competition, and exhibits, this free event will get you thinking about the messy world of dog poo.
