Lewis and Clark National Historical Park invite canines and their humans to an Earth Day Dog Walk on April 20, 2017

Celebrate Earth Day and bring your dogs out to Lewis and Clark National Historical Park on April 20th for a two-mile stroll on the Netul Trail, to Fort Clatsop and back. Dog lovers and community members are welcome to attend from 3-5pm and there will be prizes, drinks and snacks. The walk starts at the park's Netul Landing, approximately one mile past the visitor center on Fort Clatsop Road.

The Earth Day event is a senior project for Astoria High School student Maryann Mandujano. She belongs to the Lewis and Clark National Historical Park Science & Sustainability youth leadership team. After participating in North Cascades Institute's backcountry Youth Leadership Adventures program in Summer 2016 to learn about climate change's impact on National Parks and communities, Maryann wants to give back to the Astoria community through encouraging locals to reduce their carbon footprint by spending more time outdoors. At this dog walk, community members can learn environmentally responsible ways to enjoy nature with their dogs, as well as more information about sustainability. For more information, call the park at (503) 861-2471.
