Oregon’s Governor has provided an outline for slowly reopening many sectors in Oregon and most counties have applied to do so.  Join this 45-minute webinar and Q&A to translate what Oregon’s phased approach to loosening stay at home restrictions means for reopening the outdoors to the public. Content will include detailed information about what is permitted in Phase 1 reopening and the implications to the tourism industry. Information will also be shared about potential pathways that would permit non-local recreationists.

Panelists include:

  • Cailin O’Brien-Feeney, Oregon Office of Outdoor Recreation
  • Michelle Mitchell, U.S. Forest Service
  • Aaron Curtis, Bureau of Land Management

Travel Oregon will moderate the session.

This webinar is the first of a mini-series moderated by Travel Oregon intended to cover foundational material to reopening public lands. This webinar will not include detailed content related to how tour operators and guides may be able operate, strategies to mobilizing volunteers during this pandemic, or potential messages for responsible recreation.
