When the Resource Management Plan (RMP) for the Middlesex Fells Reservation was unanimously approved by the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) Stewardship Council last year, not only the enforcement of the leash law on the trails but also the management of the off-leash area at Sheepfold were made subject to review. On Friday, February 1, the  Council will conduct the first annual review the  implementation of the Fells RMP.

The Stewardship Council meets from 1pm - 3pm, at Willowdale Estate, Bradley Palmer State Park, in Topsfield. The agenda is available online.

Everyone who enjoys the Middlesex Fells Reservation with dogs is encouraged to attend the meeting to hear the report by Tom Walsh, DCR Urban Parks Fells District Manager, Ale Echandi, DCR Natural Resources Specialist, and Mike Nelson, DCR Regional Park Ranger Supervisor, Urban Parks North Region.

The Council will hear public comments at the end of the meeting.  This will be an opportunity for those who visit the Fells with dogs to speak about their experiences at Sheepfold and on the trails.
