Local dog park needs help

For many years dog lovers Al Salter and Clint Lee lived on 36 hilly acres off Bitney Springs Road. When Mr. Salter died in 2001, the land was bequeathed to the Nevada County Land Trust with the understanding the land would be developed as a dog park.

The Land Trust negotiated with a park district to have them administer the park to be named the Lee-Salter Canine Recreation Park, but in 2006 these negotiations fell through.

The Land Trust is currently accepting proposals from other groups who might be able to complete this project and see that Al Salter’s vision of “a place where dogs can frolic in the sun while their guardians stroll on well-maintained paths” can become a reality.

A local group, operating under the working title, “SOS,” or “Save Our Salter,” shares Mr. Salter’s vision and can use your help and support.

For more information, or to volunteer or sign a petition, call Susan Click at 274-0677, e-mail s.m.click@att.net or visit the Web site at http://www.salterdog park.org.
