May 28 UPDATE
Just recently we've started to release short videos shot by members about tips and techniques that work for them with respect to equipment and ideas to use in camp. The series is called "What Works for Me". Look for these to come in either email or to be posted on CIWC Social Media.Important Links for COVID-19 Status and Updates
Additionally the DNR Trails Section has contacted us with these suggestions.
The best practices we have personally been trying to promote are hiking at non-peaks hours (weekends or late afternoon or early evening) if possible as well as considering taking the less popular trails when possible. For example in the Indianapolis area, maybe consider hiking the trails at the Nina Pulliam Ecolab at Marian University or Southeastway Park rather than the those at Eagle Creek Park, Holliday Park, or Fort Harrison that are often very busy. And if you do go to Eagle Creek maybe you don’t try to hike the red trail and instead opt for the green loop or the newer trails on the west side that are less popular.
CIWC still has all public events such as classes and outside events on hold until further notice. Furthermore, we are working on being able to provide some "on line" events through Zoom conferencing. However, because of subscription limitations these may only be available to a small audience of less than 100 people. We will send out email notifications to announce.
If you go out for exercise please use common sense and adhere to the CDC guidelines for social distancing and employ sanitation strategies.
