SF SPCA Encourages Public to Speak Out at GGNRA Meeting

Monday, March 7, 2011

As a member of the Eco-Dog coalition, the SF SPCA will advocate for on- and off-leash recreation in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area (GGNRA) at an open house style meeting on Monday, March 7, 2011. The meeting, the third of four conducted in the Bay Area, offers the public a chance to respond to the draft Dog Management Plan presented by the National Park Service in January.

That draft plan recommends banning or curtailing both on- and off-leash access to such areas as Fort Funston, Baker Beach, Crissy Field, the Marin Headlands, and many other parts of the GGNRA that currently allow limited or unfettered access to dogs and their guardians.

The SF SPCA encourages all responsible dog guardians who like to experience nature with their canine companions to attend the meeting and offer environmentally-sound alternatives to the Park Service's proposals.

Meeting Details:

Building A
Marina Boulevard at Buchanan
