For me, I won't be able to explore Land's End without a leash. No more walking the walls of Sutro Baths. And, I won't be allowed to play in the pine forest in Ft. Miley even with a leash. I won't be able to hike around the dunes of Ft. Funston, either. And, I'll be restricted to a small strip of beach at Crissy Field, never mind Muir Beach, where I will be prohibited from enjoying, leash or no leash. I'm beginning to appreciate the New Hampshire State Motto: Live Free or Die. At Ocean Beach, I won't be allowed at all in the southern part of the beach which starts approximately at the end of where Golden Gate Park hits the Great Highway.
How to take action.
- The entire GGNRA Draft Dog Management document is on-line. Read the Executive Summary (third document down the list).
- Study the proposed preferred and proposed alternatives for each of your favorite areas.
- Comment on-line to the NPS by April 14th, 2011 (11:59 pm Mountain Time). This and snail mail are the only ways to address your concerns as phone, email or faxes will not be considered.
- Attend one of the public open-house meetings held in the first week of March.
|No more packs greater than THREE.|
|No more running up and down the dunes at FF.|
|No plan to restrict these scavengers who will happily raid|
snowy plover nests since they won't have ME to chase them away!
Yipes! I also just found out that a man was found dead on Ocean Beach on New Year's Eve. Ma and I were there that day - exactly when he was found around 11:30 AM. You might remember it was kind of a dreary day.
|Maybe I was distracted by that foamy crab....|
|but, I don't remember a dead guy!|
Be good, be safe and til my next misadventure, what say we rename the NPS, No Park Service.
