Yes, we will be leading outdoor adventures for youth this summer, but they will be a little different....
COVID19 Risk Management for Summer Hikes
Our first priority is the safety of our staff and program participants. Here are the procedures we will be following, and what we will be requesting of our participants. Working together, we can help keep everyone safe while learning and adventuring outdoors.
WISE works with the US Bureau of Land Management Glennallen Field Office to lead a series of youth-centered hikes each summer in the Copper River Basin. Boreal forest, mountains, rivers, kettle lakes, mud volcanoes, and waterfalls provide the backdrop for engaging activities and lessons on Leave No Trace principles and environmental science.
These activities are geared towards youth, but all ages are welcome. For the summer of 2020 we will be doing hikes by request, please contact WISE if your family or small group would like to schedule an activity.
For day hikes, all participants should be prepared with a day pack, sturdy hiking shoes, raincoat, warm layers, lunch/snacks, water bottle, and any medications or first aid needs. You may also want a camera, binoculars, sunscreen, sunglasses, and insect repellant. For camps, participants will be sent a “what-to-bring list,” and there will be loaner gear available.
