“Outdoor recreation is one of the best things we can do to promote physical, mental and emotional well-being for Washingtonians during a time of great stress and isolation," Inslee said.
He's allowed the day use of state parks, state public lands, and state Fish and Wildlife areas. Washington State residents have the green light for fishing, hunting, and golf activities.
Now what? Here's what to know before you get outside.
State-managed lands are open for day use, but federal and local lands might still be closed.
Also, if your destination is crowded, do the right thing and try somewhere else nearby.
Bring soap, water, hand sanitizer, and toilet paper. Bathroom facilities may be closed or limited.
Maintain at least 6 feet of space. Allow room to pass on the trail.
Make sure to bring adequate food and supplies. Don't overrun rural grocery stores.
We're all counting on it.
Governor Inslee has made it clear that outdoor recreation is open, but could be rescinded if the public doesn't follow responsible guidelines. Please be mindful of others and be mindful of the land.
Let's flatten that curve — and hit the trail.
