The Wahkiakum County Eagle - Established as The Skamokawa Eagle in 1891

Earth Day Dog Walk set for April 20


March 30, 2017

A dog walk will be hosted at Lewis and Clark National Historical Park’s Netul Landing to help raise awareness about climate change, as well as promote outdoor activities. Leashed dogs will walk two miles on the Netul Trail, to Fort Clatsop and back. The event will take place on Thursday, April 20 from 3 to 5 p.m. at the park’s Netul Landing. The landing is approximately one mile past the visitor center entrance on Fort Clatsop Road. There will be prizes, drinks and snacks provided. Dog lovers and community members are welcome to attend.

Astoria High School student Maryann Mandujano is organizing this event as part of her senior project. 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.
