The Golden Gate National Recreation Area (GGNRA) released a draft Dog Management Plan on January 14th, 2011. This document is a culmination of a planning process focused on how best to manage dog walking throughout the GGNRA. It identifies a number of alternatives, evaluates the impact of each alternative, and identifies a preferred alternative. The preferred alternative further restricts both on- and off-leash recreation in the GGNRA.
Go to "Get Involved" for information on the actions you need to take during this important comment period, which has been extended until May 29th.
Go to the Maps tab of the Resource Library to see maps that show on- and off-leash areas as they exist under the current plan and the GGNRA's Preferred Alternative for the future of those areas.
Eco-Dog also provides information about responsible dog guardianship, essential for protecting and preserving off-leash dog walking in beautiful natural areas, and a resource library with more detailed information about subjects related to dogs and dog guardians.
There was a public meeting at the San Francisco SPCA on February 8 to explain how the new rule could dramatically reduce your options for dog walking in the GGNRA, and what you can do to influence the outcome. View documents presented at the meeting by going to the Resource Library and clicking the EcoDog Docs tab. You can also watch video of the meeting below.
