2020 Annual 5K Paw Walk

San Diego Botanic Garden in Encinitas

 

It’s almost time for the 8th Annual 5K Paw Walk in the Garden, hosted by the San Diego Botanic Garden and the Rancho Coastal Human Society. Proceeds will benefit both organizations.

 

The San Diego Botanic Garden’s mission is to introduce, or re-introduce, residents to the beauty and resources at the 37-acre facility in Encinitas.

 

This fun, non-competitive event is on Saturday February 15, rain or shine, beginning at 8 am and running until 12 noon. The first walk starts at 9 am, and you must begin your walk no later than 11 am.

From what I’ve read, and heard from a couple of people I know with dogs, humans AND dogs alike love the 5K Paw Walk at the San Diego Botanic Garden. And of course it’s a beautiful place to visit.

 

The San Diego Botanic Garden 5K Paw Walk will have pet products available, food for humans, dog treats, and plenty of information and displays for canine lovers. You can be sure there will be plenty of dogs and owners and friends enjoying a beautiful day in the award winning gardens in Encinitas if photos from before are any indication!

 

The San Diego Botanic Garden has 4 miles of beautiful trails, lots of palms and flowering trees and plants. The Garden also hosts the largest collection of bamboo in the country in their 37-acre facility. You’ll also enjoy multiple micro-climates ranging from rainforest to desert, from Hawaii to bamboo, to tropical fruit and Canary Islands.

 

Rancho Coastal Humane Society, founded in 1960, provides a wide range of programs and services including shelter care, adoption, education, pet assisted therapy, a pet food bank (1st and 3rd Saturday of each month from 9 until 11 am), and an animal safe-house.

 

You can register now for this fun event for you and your dog, with several ticket prices. And you can also fundraise for prizes!

Wow, the gardens look like they have a lot of exotic plants.  It would be fun to stroll through it.

Just my kind of event, Jeff... and if I lived in your area, I'd be there in a NY minute with my Bingo... who loves nothing more than people and other dogs.

Jeff this is a great idea.  We have several 5K walk/run events around here, but I do not know of any 5K Paw Walk event.

Hi June Piper-Brandon 

They say the first year they had 350 dogs so it seems to be pretty popular, AND a great fundraiser for both organizations.

I have never been to this particular event Kathy Streib  but by all reports it's lots of fun. The gardens are beautiful - we have been for multiple events including the chocolate festival and the artfest and they were great fun.

Jeff,

Quincy cat who is happy walking on a leash would love to join the paws.  He does like dogs and has a beagle friend, a white lab friend as well as a terrier friend.  I am not sure other dogs would feel the same way.  A

Good question Barbara Todaro I bet some dog owners end up carrying their little ones...but perhaps they have a ton of energy. Think about how many footsteps for the small doggies?!

There are several events like this in our area, although this is the only one in a venue like this George Souto 

Good point Ron and Alexandra Seigel  That's neat that Chauncy likes other dogs...at least some of them!
