As many of you know, the Mpls. Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) is looking
for a location for an off-leash dog park in south or southwest
Minneapolis. Two of three locations are adjacent or very near the east entrance to
Roberts Bird Sanctuary. Below is are excerpts from an update regarding this
issue, which is being monitored by Aud. Chap. of Mpls.
I think that little is known about the effects of dog parks on bird
sanctuaries. If anyone has access to research or other information, you can
contact Kit at the following:

>Audubon Chapter of Minneapolis
Here's an update for people on what's happening regarding possibly
an off-leash dog park next to Roberts Bird Sanctuary.
The issue has not been added to the MPRB agenda and no citizen input
meetings have been scheduled.
You can mail a letter, send an email, or make a phone call, or do all
three! The Commissioners need to hear from us.
If you are not opposed to dog parks in general, please let the
Commissioners know this as well. (When my dogs were alive, I often took
them to off-leash parks.)
Also, please forward this email to others who want to preserve and protect
