Outdoors COVID-19 Toolkit

The Office of Outdoor Recreation is pleased to partner with the Wisconsin Department of Health Services and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources to create the “Get Outside. Stay Safe. Be Well.” toolkit. The updated winter edition of the toolkit provides a series of downloadable posters and social media graphics that encourage safe and responsible outdoor recreation. Land managers, communities, and businesses that offer outdoor recreation can use these tools to help create a consistent statewide message inviting Wisconsinites to get outside, stay safe, and be well. In addition to these assets, the message is being supported by a PSA campaign on the Wisconsin Radio Network.

Updated for Winter

In addition to this toolkit, please check out the #RecreateResponsibly coalition, a national group formed during the health crisis to encourage experiencing the benefits of the outdoors safely. You can find their winter toolkit here.
