In response to COVID-19 many community events have been postponed or cancelled altogether. However, some organizers are getting creative with how they can bring their communities together during social distancing; virtual community events!
In order to connect people to the outdoors, Wilderness Inquiry is partnering with a variety of organizers to help their community events go virtual. Head to the link in our bio to learn more.

National Get Outdoors Day
This annual event encourages Americans, especially youth, to get active outdoors and embrace our parks, forests, refuges and other public lands and waters. Celebrate the day by walking your dog in a park, going for a hike, planting a garden, exercising outdoors, or watching local wildlife from a safe distance. If you can’t get outside, watch a virtual tour of Powderhorn Park below!
