Welcome to the

Grateful Dogs of Juneau.


US Forest Service begins planning for trails and recreation areas

 

Upgrades to Treadwell Ditch Trail, West Glacier Trail, and Lena  Beach:  The Forest Service is planning improvements to three recreation areas: Treadwell Ditch, West Glacier Trailhead, and Lena Beach.   There will be an open house on March 10, 2014, from 5:307:30 p.m. at the Juneau Ranger District Office, 8510 Mendenhall Loop Road at 5:30 and 6:30 pm.   The Forest Service will provide a description of the current conditions and proposals at the sites.  The remainder of the meeting time is available for questions and answers.  The Deadline for Comments on the projects is April 18, 2014.

The Forest Service proposes to improve the Treadwell Ditch Trail between Blue Berry Hills Subdivision north to the Bonnie Brae Subdivision by building stream crossing structures such as bridges, culverts, and shallow water fords at 38 crossings; constructing a total of 0.4 miles of trail that will replace areas of muddy or failed trail; and rerouting the trail to avoid difficult or numerous stream crossings.  

At West Glacier Trailhead, the Forest Service proposes to add parking, install a gate, build a 0.4 mile non-motorized trail parallel to the road to separate traffic, construct a spur trail to the lake, install a six-hole vault outhouse to serve heavy summer use, and install signs.

At Lena Beach, the Forest Service proposes paving the road through the recreation area, changing the road to a one-way road, adding parking, and adding gates; reconstructing five shelters, replacing the existing trails to shelters with accessible trails, replacing outhouses, and adding other recreation amenities.

The Forest Service hopes to begin construction on these projects in the summer of 2015.

KEEPING YOUR DOG SAFE in the dark

Keep you and your dog safe after dark:  With long winter nights, the Grateful Dogs Of Juneau reminds dog owners to use reflective clothing and safety lights both on themselves and on their dogs, when walking or jogging with their dogs after dark.  Dogs and pedestrians that are not visible to drivers are a hazard.  

 

Dog owners should do all that they can to keep themselves and their dogs safe when walking or jogging after dark.  Appropriate safety clothing and lights for you and your dog are readily available at several stores in the community.

Clean up after your dog: The Grateful Dogs of Juneau reminds dog owners to pick up after their dogs. In recent years, dog owners have made great strides in promoting a dog friendly community by cleaning up after their dogs.  If we continue to clean up after our dogs, we can make Juneau an even more attractive place to live and a more dog friendly community.
