Prepare to be as elated as your dog about the prospect of going for a walk.
On April 4 at 10 a.m., park rangers from Rosie the Riveter/WWII Home Front National Historical Park will lead a dog-friendly “walk-and-talk” along Richmond’s Bay Trail, the park announced Tuesday.
Although it is not mandatory to bring a dog, folks are encouraged to do so since the rangers will be talking about the vital role that 10,000 American family dogs served in the American WWII defense effort.
The two-mile walk will last about two hours. Space is limited to 30 people, however, so those wishing to come should swiftly sign up by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Include your phone number in your email message.
Participants will meet rangers at the Point Isabel Regional Shoreline near the Sit and Stay Café. For directions to Point Isabel, visit here.
Prepare to do some light stretching before setting off toward the Rosie the Riveter Memorial.
“Since the walk is not a loop, all participants will be responsible for finding their own way back to their car,” organizers said in a statement. “There are parking lots at Point Isabel and also at Marina Bay Park.”
The national park is hosting this program in collaboration with the “Healthy Parks Healthy People Bay Area” initiative promoting the therapeutic benefits of visiting local parks.
