Obed Wild & Scenic River announces a new program for those who visit the park with their canine companions. The BARK Ranger program encourages “pawsitive” experiences for canine-visitors and their human companions, while keeping people, pets, and wildlife safe while visiting the park.

The self-guided program is as easy as the acronym “BARK.”
  1. B – Bag your dog’s waste and properly dispose it
  2. A – Always leash your pet. Keep dogs on a six-foot leash and under control at all times while in the park
  3. R – Respect wildlife
  4. K – Know where you can go

Dogs completing this short program can be sworn in as BARK Rangers and their owners will be eligible to earn a special BARK Ranger collar tag at the visitor center.
