Dress accordingly – The weather is part of the experience


Thank you to all the dog walkers who have been helping by keeping their dogs on a leash. This is particularly important when there are a lot of people, dogs and excitement in the center circle. It makes for a more orderly and enjoyable experience for all in attendance. You are some of our biggest supporters.

Those of you who have been there in the past know that we regularly review four virtues of Cesar Chavez which are metaphorically associated with the four cardinal directions. Tolerance is also one of those virtues. And it is a good one to be reminded of as we learn to be with one another harmoniously in a special space and moment.

  1. As a responsible dog owner, I am dismayed at the number of dog owners who allow their off leash dogs to enter the burrowing owl habitat. Perhaps they do not see the signs designating the area “no Off leash”. (signs could be bolder and lower) Maybe they do not read the informative signs about the endangered, helpless creatures trying to survive the winter. Perhaps the off leash dog area can be fenced in or citations can be issued to offenders…the humans that is. Sylvia Falcon, Point Isabel Dog Owners board member. (PIDO).
