COVID-19 Update: Offering limited in-person programs!

Phased reopening of in-person programming. 

Subject to change at any point.

Entering into this new phase of the COVID-19 Pandemic, we are excited to offer in-person programming in addition to our Gear Up and Go Equipment Loan Program and virtual Thrive Guide offerings. We will continue to roll this out in stages. The first in-person activities are hiking with social distancing, donning face coverings and frequent hand sanitizing.  We acknowledge that there is an increased risk with in-person programming and we ask that everyone participating understands these risks and the steps we are taking to mitigate them. Please reach out with any questions or concerns! 

Social Distancing protocols, face-coverings and CDC hygiene recommendations will be followed. Masks/Face Coverings will be worn at first meeting and at the end of activity. Once 15 feet of distance can be maintained, face coverings may be removed. Social Distancing will not be possible if there is an emergency situation.
