Sir Nicholas

American’s love their pets. They are a part of the family. With this in mind The Selma to Montgomery National Historic Trail does allow pets on the trail and at the Lowndes Interpretive Center (LIC). However, there are a few rules to go by.

Pets are welcome but must be maintained on a leash

Pets are allowed on the Historic trail and on the LIC grounds but not allowed in the Visitor Center/museums (seeing eye dogs/service animals excepted).

You are expected to clean up after your pet. Remember to bring the “pooper scooper.”

Do not allow your pet to chase or annoy any of the natural wildlife. Keep in mind that the natural wildlife is indeed wild and an encounter can lead to serious injury of your pet.
