Protect Marin County's Parks & Open Spaces - Yes on A

Measure A funds at work
Measure A funds at work

Measure A's quarter-cent sales tax supports parks, open space, and agricultural lands across Marin. These funds can't be used for any other purpose. The existing Measure A has not only supported Marin County Parks facilities and programs but also become an important funding resource for city and town parks and family farms that contribute to Marin’s food supply. 

In 2012, DogTrekker.com supported Parks Measure A and voters approved a one-quarter of one percent sales tax (County Ordinance 3586) to support parks, open space, and agricultural lands across Marin. This is a Measure A Extension that we need to say YES to.

Here is more information on the Measure A Extension and a look at all of the projects that the original Measure A funded. Vote yes and continue to enjoy our incredible park system with your pup.  more »

It’s not the easiest waterfall hike in Marin County, but Cataract Falls, on the north flank of Mount Tamalpais, is easily the Bay Area’s most popular waterfall destination. It roars and gets really big after a spring rain, spouting nine silvery cascades, some 50 and more feet high, plunging down the Cataract Creek streambed. The surrounding forest, with its moss-covered rocks, ferns, tan oaks and coast redwoods, can seem a kind of emerald-green, fairy-tale kind of place. more »

Maya Visits Nick's Cove 2020

DogTrekker's Maya at Ruthie's Cabin, Nick's Cove

In Maya’s first trip since early March to the coast, she and her uprights stayed at Nick’s Cove in Marshall, Marin County, on beautiful Tomales Bay.

The Nick’s team has been trained in visitor protection while maintaining the guest experience they have always offered humans and pets. Everything was touchless from check-in to ordering to check-out. Staff, guests and visitors all wore face coverings during our recent stay.
 
While the Nick’s Cove Restaurant is closed inside, the outside dining area along the pier is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, having a cocktail as the sun goes down or watching the kids and dogs frolic in the bay. more »
