Dogs and their owners invited to ‘Strut for Strays’


On May 10, dogs and their guardians will make their way to the Ladd Arboretum for the Community Animal Rescue Effort's Strut for Strays, a three-mile walk that starts at the Ladd Arboretum in Evanston, near the corner of McCormick Blvd and Bridge Street. Parking is available in the Arboretum lot (or on side streets if the lot is full). Please do not park in the Ecology Center lot. Walk through the Rotary Friendship Garden to the Arboretum, and look for the white tents.

The walk follows the path along the North Shore Channel south almost to Dempster Street where there will be a water station and a turn-around point. However, you may turn around at any point if your dog is tired or your feet are barkin'! Come back to the starting point for refreshments and the Doggie Carnival!

After you complete the course, catch the fun at the finish line, including:
• Free Refreshments
• Doggie Carnival
