      Travel With Care

      Follow these adapted tips from the U.S. Forest Service to plan a fun and safe outing:

      1. Plan ahead. Review the websites and social media that offer information on local conditions. Visitors are also encouraged to reach out to local tourism officials with any additional questions.
      2. Respect others. Everyone wants to safety enjoy public lands and common spaces. Please make sure to stay at least six feet away from other visitors as recommended by the CDC. Wear face coverings where required.
      3. Stay home if you feel sick. Follow CDC guidance on personal hygiene and social distancing before and during your visit. Stay up-to-date on latest instruction from the North Dakota Department of Health.
      4. Support local. Find ways to support the local communities that surround natural areas. 
      5. Travel responsibility and reduce impact. There's no substitute for the lands we love. Know the regulations and special concerns for the areas you'll visit.
