Recreate Responsibly Coalition Shares Advice For Protecting Ourselves And The Lands We Love As We Head Outside This Spring

WASHINGTON, April 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Increasingly positive news about the trajectory of vaccines in the United States has people hopeful for more traditional spring and summer adventuresa??planning domestic vacations and expanding on the surge in outdoor participation brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic in 2021. Recreate responsibly when you adventure outdoors close to home or a road trip away. The Recreate Responsibly Coalition, which emerged from the pandemic as a way to offer guidance for people to safely get outside, sees this as an opportunity to carry forward lessons learned last year so that we can continue to take good care of each other and our public lands as more and more people explore the outdoors. A recent report from the Outdoor Industry Association found that millions of additional people became outdoor participants in 2020, with expectations that more than 60% of those who took up or resumed an outdoor activity intend to continue it. Many who are new to the outdoors reported exploring within 10 miles of their homea??including biking and walking on the nation's multiuse trails, which saw an increase in use of 51% in 2020, according to trail count data from Rails-to-Trails Conservancy."A year ago, everything in our lives was disrupted, including recreation. Since then, the outdoors has served a really important role for millions of people, helping us to safely connect with our friends, families and communities, while building resilience and taking good care of our mental and physical health," said Kenji Haroutunian, an outdoor industry consultant and steering committee member of the Recreate Responsibly Coalition. "As we get ready for the annual seasonal surge in outdoor activity and we continue to welcome new outdoor participants, we should remember all we learned as we discovered the outdoors in new ways last year, continuing to practice responsible recreation and taking good care of each other and the public lands and wild places we all love."
