Join us Wednesdays through May 2020 at 2-3pm ET for focused webinar discussions with panelists on topics specific for outdoor recreation professionals. As the world is in a state of adaptation and change, outdoor recreation experiences and our parks, forests, and public lands are as important as ever.
Discussion of related COVID-19 public health guidelines, risk management, operations protocols existing / in development, sanitation, best practices, and gap analysis (i.e. tools, resources, interagency coordination).
Captain Sara Newman, Director of the Office of Public Health (OPH) with the National Park Service (NPS)
Warren Meyer, Recreation Resource Management
Jeff Marsolais, USFS Acting Director Recreation, Heritage, and Volunteer Resources (invited)
