A note from FIELDGUIDES and General Manager Galen Camp
This is a challenging moment in our lives. The Sars-CoV-2 virus and COVID-19 have altered the landscape of many of the things we know and love and they continue to test the resolve of our local and global communities. The pain and suffering that accompanies COVID-19 is greater than we have words for, but our hearts go out to all of those who have experienced loss and hardship as well as to those who have put themselves on the line doing essential work to keep others healthy and safe. While no silver lining can provide solace to the effects of this pandemic, seeing the power of the human spirit to struggle, persevere, and come together with kindness and compassion amidst the pain brings much needed hope. Fieldguides hopes that it too can make the smallest of contributions to this spirit by continuing to bring people into the outdoors to bond, grow, and learn together in nature at a time when communal strength and a strong sense of self is so important to foster. We also know that we must be at our best to keep everyone who's trace crosses Fieldguides healthy and safe. With guidance from the CDC, ACA, ACN, OSHA, and local and state officials Fieldguides has crafted the following operational plan, safeguards, and control practices to provide as safe and as conscientious of a program as we know how. By following best practices and working together for the health of our communities we can keep each other safe and give ourselves the chance to build the type of connections we need to move forward and create the world we want to live in. It takes all of us and Fieldguides is ready to do its part.
