NCEL Staff #OptOutside and #RecreateResponsibly
November 30, 2020
On November 28, NCEL staff and members chose to #OptOutside. The #OptOutside movement was started by REI as a way to forgo the busy shopping practices of Black Friday, and encourage people to spend the day in nature.
2020 has been a uniquely challenging year for many reasons, and #OptOutside is a great reminder of the physical and mental benefits the outdoors has to offer. We also know that it is important to enjoy outdoor spaces safely. However you enjoy the outdoors this year, be sure to #RecreateResponsibly. Planning ahead, exploring locally, playing it safe, and practicing physical distancing are all great ways to enjoy the outdoors while ensuring the health and safety of all. Learn more about how to #RecreateResponsibly.
