Save Dog Walking in the GGNRA!
Saturday, Nov. 2
March and Rally at the GGNRA Open House Meeting
Speak now or forever hold your leash!
We're hoping to get all the dog-related Meetups to join this rally. So far, we'll be marching with Active Coastal Women (and their dogs), And you can bring your dog, Barks & Recreation - Bay Area dog-friendly adventures, Ocean Beach Buddies and we're hoping more groups will join us. Please invite your friends, family and any dog-lover you know.
11 am - March from at East Beach at Crissy Field
12 noon - Rally at lower Fort Mason outside Bldg D
Then submit your comments at the GGNRA open house.
The Golden Gate National Recreation Area has released a plan that dramatically cuts where people can walk with their dogs in recreation areas. There will be NO off-leash dog walking anywhere on GGNRA land in San Mateo County. Rodeo Beach will be the ONLY off-leash area in Marin. In San Francisco, the plan will ban dogs entirely from the vast majority of Fort Funston, the East Beach at Crissy Field and most of Ocean Beach.
This is NOT a silent rally. Bring signs, whistles, bells. Those who do not want to march 1 mile from Crissy Field can meet at the entrance to lower Fort Mason at 11:30 to walk in with the procession. Dogs must be ON LEASH at Fort Mason. There will be a dog valet so humans may submit comments at the open house inside building D.
We need some help organizing. Can you:
- Help stage and direct people at East Beach or Fort Mason?
- Man a water & biscuit station for dogs at Fort Mason?
- Distribute fliers beforehand
- Drive others to the event
If yes, please email [masked] or [masked]
Let's get going!
