Planning an outdoor adventure to close-out summer? Check out the #RecreateResponsibly guidelines for keeping people, places, and communities safe while getting outside.

  1. Know before you go – Check the status of the place you want to visit. If it is closed, don’t go. If it’s crowded, have a back up plan.
  2. Practice physical distancing – Keep your group size small. Be prepared to cover your nose and mouth and give others space. If you are sick, stay home.
  3. Plan ahead – Prepare for facilities to be closed, pack lunch and bring essentials like hand sanitizer and a face covering.
  4. Play it safe – Slow down and choose lower-risk activities to reduce your risk of injury. Search and rescue operations and health care resources are both strained.
  5. Explore locally – Limit long-distance travel and make use of local parks, trails and public spaces. Be mindful of your impact on the communities you visit.
  6. Leave no trace – Respect public lands and waters, as well as Native and local communities. Take all your garbage with you.
  7. Build an inclusive outdoors – Be an active part of making the outdoors safe and welcoming for all identities and abilities.
