Trails ’n’ Tails

Dogs in the Garden


It doesn’t get much better than a day surrounded by beautiful flora and happy dogs. The S.B. Botanic Garden knows this, which is why it has hosted Trails ’n’ Tails for the past four years. Coinciding with National Dog Day, the garden has myriad canine-friendly events planned, including dog art activities, duck herding and police K-9 demonstrations, “Who’s That Doggie in the Garden?” photo contest, a photo booth and dog parade, four-legged friendly vendors, and an exhibit of sculptures by Susan Bahary, an S.B.-based, nationally acclaimed artist specializing in canine and equine subjects. For those who are currently pup-free — or those who want to add to their pack — there will be adoptable dogs to meet. Woof! Saturday, August 24, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. S.B. Botanic Garden, 1212 Mission Canyon Road. Free with a leashed dog or $8. Call 682-4726 or visit sbbg.org.
