The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted nearly every aspect of our lives and caused a great deal of uncertainty, including how we get outdoors. This new set of #RecreateResponsibly videos provides tips on how we can protect ourselves, others, and places we love when we adventure outside.
Many of our
public lands, including beaches, parks and forests are opening up again. Being in nature is good medicine, but it’s better for us when we enjoy it in a respectful manner. Check out these tips on how you can get outdoors, but also leave no trace, social distance and plan head to have great adventures.
We created this video series in Spanish and English collaboration with the
National Forest Foundation and Recreate Responsible Coalition. Enjoy!
Travel Tip! Nature is calling. And if you’re heading out on adventures alone or with your family, remember to recreate responsibly, to help protect yourself, others, and the places we love.
La naturaleza llama. Y si te diriges a aventuras solo o con tu familia, recuerda recrear responsablemente, para ayudar a protegerte a ti mismo, a los demás y a los lugares que amamos.
As parks, trails, and beaches begin to reopen, make sure to know before you go. Check the status of the place you want to visit to make sure it’s not closed. It it’s crowded, have a backup plan in mind.
When you choose to recreate responsibly, you’re doing your part to keep yourself and others safe and healthy. Respect public lands and communities and take all of your garbage with you. Leave no trace, so we can all enjoy our public lands.
Cuando eliges recrearte responsablemente, estás haciendo tu parte para mantenerte saludable y seguro a ti mismo yo los que están a tu alrededor. Respeta las tierras y comunidades públicas y llévate toda la basura contigo.
We’re all eager to get back outdoors–and we want to do it right. Prepare for facilities to be closed. Pack your lunch and essential supplies like hand sanitizer and face coverings to protect yourself and the places we love.
Most places are only open for day use, so keep that in mind when planning your outdoor adventures and pick places close to home, where possible.
Lead by example and adventure only with your immediate household. Be prepared to cover your nose and mouth and give others space. If you are sick stay home.
As parks, trails, and beaches begin to reopen, remember to 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 strained.
A medida que los parques, senderos y playas comienzan a reabrir, ten en cuenta tu seguridad. Elije actividades de menor riesgo para reducir las probabilidades de lesiones. Las operaciones de búsqueda y rescate y los recursos de atención médica son limitados.
