Shaping San Francisco Public Talk: Dogs, Density, and Natural Areas

After decades of looking the other way, the Golden Gate National Recreation Area (GGNRA) is proposing to limit off-leash activity to select portions of its lands. 

Join panelists Brent Plater of the Wild Equity Institute, Amber Hasselbring of Nature in the City, master birder Dominik Mosur and moderator Jason Mark of the Earth Island Journal for a discussion about the issues associated with human density and respectful dog ownership in San Francisco. 

This is going to be a fantastic discussion! Arrive early to get a good seat. The seats will fill up quickly.

    It is idiotic that we even have to discuss the plain fact that dogs should be on leash and be shielded from sensitive areas.

    The San Francisco Botanical Garden Society has banned dogs from its feudalistic domain for decades now without controversy.

    Why do dogs count more than people or common sense here in SF? :(

    Been fighting the good fight in Marin against them & to keep dogs their freedom and happiness on the trails.
    Sharing w/others to pick up their bags, not have too many dogs at once, and be under voice command (which is where the human-animals need to learn respect) when their dog is making others & other dogs scared/uncomfortable they need to say c'here immediately, oh...and not Block the path w/5 abreast.

    Simple common courtesy goes a Long way. ';-)

    I have been helping on the native-plant restoration effort in the GGNRA for many years. Most dog owners are very supportive and I want to make sure their voices are heard.
