COVID-19 Update

We hope that all of you, our valued members, are keeping safe and healthy. We know it's a challenge to come together and to safely enjoy the outdoors and the company of others as the pandemic continues to spread. As the situation continues to change in each of our states, this is our updated guidance:

  • All attendees must comply with mask and physical distancing requirements.
  • Events are for paid members only. 
  • To enable contact tracing, trip leaders must collect names and phone numbers of participants.
  • All trip leaders and Regional Contacts must stay abreast of and adhere to their respective states' guidelines for gatherings, including maximum participant limits and requirements to report infections. These guidelines constantly change. It is trip leaders' responsibility to check on the current status both when initially planning an outing and immediately before it commences.

The pandemic doesn't have to cut us off from exercise and the companionship, laughter, stories and insights of other women who love the outdoors.

In the coming months, we'll bring you presentations that will include online dance and exercise sessions, a book group devoted to books by and about women in the outdoors, workshops on open-water swimming and survival skills, and more, in addition to more casual game nights, crafting nights and the like. Some presentations will be done by experts, while some will be done by fellow members, such as, perhaps, you?
