Tails wag on Los Jilgueros Preserve trails

FALLBROOK — About 100 dog lovers and their canines participated in the Fallbrook Land Conservancy’s (FLC) annual Tails and Trails Dog Walk at Los Jilgueros Preserve, just off South Mission Road, on Saturday, March 14.

As Connie Freese, chairman of FLC’s Friends of Los Jilgueros committee, announced, “The goal for our event this year is to focus on the importance of Los Jilgueros to the community, to encourage more volunteerism and to urge all preserve users to act responsibly and show their support for this beautiful place we love so much.”

FLC members and dog-walkers alike had a great morning socializing, walking the mile-long loop trail from the south end parking area and back, competing in contests for ugliest cute dog to prettiest female senior dog, enjoying “best tricks” performed by the wonderful four-legged companions and generally agreeing that this preserve is one of Fallbrook’s jewels that must not be taken for granted.

The event raised more than $2,300 for the Los Jilgueros Preserve Fund and brought attention to the needs of the preserve. “I would like to encourage everyone to take responsibility for the welfare of this lovely piece of rural Fallbrook,” Freese said. “As the Land Conservancy enters its 21st year, let’s all show our appreciation by carrying on the legacy of Karen and Wallace Tucker and support the Fallbrook Land Conservancy by making a donation at least at the minimum membership level.”
