Here are a few ideas on staying safe on walks and hikes into Nature.
1. Wear long pants tucked into socks.
2. Wear sturdy hiking shoes that protect
ankles and that are comfortable.
3. Use insect protection and after a hike take a
warm shower and comb hair for ticks.
We wash our hiking clothes in case of ticks.
4. Look but don't touch.......some plants
5. Wear sun protection like sunblock and a

6. Wear a mask and respect other peoples
space by staying 6 feet apart. Masks can
also protect you from pollen.
7. Be observant and watch your step to avoid
accidents and to enjoy the sights and sounds
8. Avoid walking thru tall grass. Stick to the
trail. Step lightly on the land.
9. Have fun learning more about Nature and

For this walk we were out of the forest, Robert Kearns led us on a path to discovery and learning more about estuaries and their environmental importance. This walk involved two communities that are closely connected. Coming together, sharing ideas, learning about what works in different communities is part of Green Community Connections. One thing that is evident is that we aren't alone in our quest to preserve our remaining forests, meadows, estuaries, and wetlands.
