Dogs prevail over GGNRA management plan

A controversial attempt by the National Park Service to change dog management rules in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area has ended with NPS abandoning the effort. In a statement on Oct. 19, The NPS said it has “permanently ended a planning and rulemaking process intended to establish new regulations,” which involved changes to where dogs would be able to be off-leash and on-leash. The NPS attributed at least some of the blame to controversy over staff e-mail use.

GGNRA said it will instead continue enforcing pertinent regulations from 1979.
