One thing I think we should be doing about this problem to be proactive in a positive way is to start offering free information and skills clinics at your home course. Pick a Saturday, get a flyer up at the course, round up a few local golfers or club members and start educating the public. This can be done in a low key, polite and even fun way -- get a sponsor to offer some swag to the people. A couple folks can offer skills instruction off to the side, while a couple others are at the first tee to explain what you're trying to do.
Stuff like etiquette and care of the course can be covered and you can answer people's questions, etc. Environmental degradation is also a serious problem at a lot of courses. You can tell people that doing this kind of stuff will help show the parks department that disc golfers care about the park and will help make sure the course will last for years.
