After much consideration, Y.E.T.I. has decided to resume some of our day trips and programs. These trips look a bit different than before but we are so excited to be able to share the outdoors with youth in our community! All of our programs are following the social distancing and mask orders put forth by Washington State.
All of our trips have been at local parks to reduce the risk of spreading the virus during transportation. So far our trips have included tide pooling, kayaking, hiking, and fort building!
Y.E.T.I. is a proud member of The Washington Recreate Responsibly Coalition learn more about safely getting your family outside:
Six tips to help you #RecreateResponsibly
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 plan B.
Plan Ahead: Prepare for facilities to be closed, pack lunch and bring essentials like hand sanitizer and a face covering.
Stay Close to Home: This is not the time to travel long distances to recreate. Most places are only open for day use.
Practice Physical Distancing: Adventure only with your immediate household. Be prepared to cover your nose and mouth and give others space. If you are sick, stay home.
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.
Leave No Trace: Respect public lands and communities and take all your garbage with you.
