Dogs are now welcome back to the Connemara Meadow Nature Preserve year-round!
“Pooch Permits” are now available for dog owners who would like to bring their dogs to the Meadow on a regular basis. Permits are $75 per year (less than $7/month!) and only $65 per year for persons 65 and older.
All funds raised from the permits go toward the support of Meadow Preserve restoration projects and maintenance.
Dogs must remain leashed and owners must clean up after their pet. Other rules apply.
In 2016, the Connemara Conservancy board of directors changed the policy regarding dogs in the Meadow. Dogs were prohibited from the Meadow several years ago in order to revitalize areas of the 72-acre Nature Preserve.
