RECREATE RESPONSIBLY
21LBID009_RecreateResponsibly_Flyer_Letter.jpg

‘Recreate Responsibly’ guidelines include:

 

1. Know Before You Go: Check the status of the place you want to visit. If it is closed, don’t go. If it’s crowded, have a backup plan.

2. Practice Physical Distancing: Keep your group size small. Be prepared to cover your nose and mouth and give others space. If you are sick, stay home.

3. Plan Ahead: Prepare for facilities to be closed, pack lunch, and bring essentials like hand sanitizer and a face covering. Check local regulations regarding the need for a face covering.

4. Play it Safe: Slow down and choose lower-risk activities to reduce your risk of injury. Search and rescue operations and health care resources are both strained.

5. Explore Locally: Limit long-distance travel and make use of local parks, trails, and public spaces. Be mindful of your impact on the communities you visit.

6. Leave No Trace: Respect public lands and waters, as well as Native and local communities. Take all garbage with you.

7. Build an Inclusive Outdoors: Be an active part of making the outdoors safe and welcoming for all identities and abilities.

Know Campfire Safety - know how to safely light, maintain and extinguish your campfire. Drown, stir, drown some more, then feel. If it is too hot to touch, it is too hot to leave. Never leave a campfire unattended. Check fire stage for restrictions. 
 

Check Firework Restrictions - fireworks are prohibited on public lands. Check local restrictions to learn more.

 

Dispose of Cigarettes Properly - throw away used cigarettes properly, not on the ground. Check fire stage for smoking area restrictions.

Maintain Your Vehicle and Secure Chains - before you drive, make sure your vehicle is properly maintained. Low tire pressure, worn breaks, loose tow chains and metal parts could all cause sparks while driving. It’s also important to stay away from dry grass or brush. The heat from mufflers and exhaust pipes can also start a fire.
 

Act Responsibly Around Wildfires

If there’s a wildfire in the area, please:

  • Give firefighters and their equipment space.

  • Do not fly drones over or near the fire. Wildfires are a no-drone zone.

  • Check current fire stages and restrictions.

 

Fire Stages and Restrictions - go to mtfireinfo.org to check the area’s current fire stage and full restriction details.

Stage One (Yellow) - no campfires or smoking outside of a vehicle, building or developed rec area.

Stage Two (Orange) - no campfires; smoking outside of a vehicle, building or developed rec area; operation of internal combustion engines; explosives; welding, or use of acetylene or other torches with open flames; operation of motorized vehicles off designated roads and trails, and more.
