Unique Job Opportunity
A career as a Conservation Ranger provides you with a meaningful role in maintaining the environmental health of some of the city’s most beautiful private parklands.
Sgt. Poopers® Conservation Control Corps is highly appreciated by the local community.
A ranger is “a person who manages or looks after a park, forest, or area of countryside.” The urban environment is our forest floor and we treat every yard like a National Park.
Although we certainly love dogs, we are not in the pet industry; we're a conservation company that does lawn cleaning and much more. Conservation means to manage human impact on land and water, and that includes the unintended consequences of pet ownership by humans. Never in history have so many dogs been packed into homes, apartment buildings and neighborhoods. Their impact on the landscape is devastating and our services helps manage that toxicity by resetting the pathogen count through decontamination efforts.
In practical terms, conservation includes the removal, mitigation, or elimination of pollution sources including solid waste, liquid waste, litter, pathogens, odors, pests, electrosmog, poisons and toxins. We work both in the healthy outdoors and inside structures.
Comparison to Lawn Care
A big part of what we do is lawn cleaning, since the popularity of dogs is a leading cause of pollution in Dallas. Dallas' 1.2 million dogs deposits 900,000 pounds of waste onto the ground each day. If not removed, storms and sprinklers wash it directly into creeks, lakes and the Trinity River.
"Lawn cleaning" is similar to "lawn care" in that we travel from yard to yard on a weekly route. So a comparison is worth considering.
HEAT & COLD: Lawn care professionals spend a minimum of twenty minutes at each house. We average nine minutes per stop then we're back in an air-conditioned truck, driving to the next stop so you can cool off in hot weather. Our work is cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter because we are not outdoors as long as the lawn care pros.
NOISE: Lawn care pros have to endure the deafening roar of gasoline motors all day — mowers, weed eaters, and leaf blowers. Our work is completely quiet. You can hear the birds.
DUST AND FUMES: All day long, lawn care pros breathe gasoline fumes, exhaust, clouds of dust and pollen. Our work is fume, exhaust, and dust free. Sometimes we smell poop, but so do lawn care pros. Our disinfectant extinguishes odors instantly (it's caused by bacteria).
TOXIC CHEMICALS: Unlike lawn care pros, we don't use any toxic or flammable chemicals, fuels, pesticides, or fertilizers. We're 100% all-natural and non-toxic.
HEAVY WEIGHT: With motorized equipment and gas tanks, lawn care equipment is heavy. By comparison, our equipment is lightweight.
RAINY DAYS: Lawn care pros cannot work in the rain, so they have to make up rainy days on Saturday. We work straight through most rain (we supply employees with rain suits) so we never have to work on the weekends.
NOT SEASONAL: The lawn care business is seasonal. Business slows down in winter when grass stops growing. As a result, many workers get laid off. By comparison, our business is steady all year long. We never lay people off. Your income will remain constant.
