Online: Hiking VERY Close to Home

Tue. Apr 28, 2020 7:00 pm

With Maribeth Crandell and Jack Hartt, Transition Fidalgo

Join us for a Zoom presentation on Hiking Very Close to Home, in an age of Stay Home, Stay Safe, Stay Sane.Maribeth and Jack wrote a book called Hiking Close to Home last year, featuring trails on Whidbey, Fidalgo, and Guemes islands. With the Stay at Home order, we still need to get outdoors when and where we can do so safely.Their presentation will focus only on trails that are within walking or bike-riding distance of where we live. They will discuss the most up to date details about trail closures and restrictions, and provide recommendations for hiking safely under the various circumstances we all now encounter.

Should I go hiking? Can it be safe? What trails are still open? Why go outside?

Share your thoughts, comments, and questions by email throughout the meeting so we can answer questions as they arise.The address of the Zoom meeting will be shared a few days ahead of time, so visit the Transition Fidalgo Web site for specific login information.

Call in or join by computer. The presentation will start at 6:45 with music and welcoming messages, and the presentation starts at 7. Hopefully. This is all a new world of how to meet together without meeting together.
