Harris Center Outings in the Age of COVID-19

May 27, 2020

The Harris Center offers in-person, outdoor events and outings with the utmost caution and care for our community. We will be taking the following precautions seriously.
updated 4/19/21


For now, we will be offering outdoor outings only. Indoor events will continue to be offered online via Zoom, or postponed until such time as it’s safe to once again gather together inside.

Registration & Group Sizes

All in-person outings will be by registration only, with group size limited to 12 people (including the trip leaders). In order to keep gatherings limited to 12 people or less, registered attendees may not bring friends or family who have not also registered in advance.

Social Distancing

All participants are expected to maintain appropriate social distancing on Harris Center outings.


All trip leaders and participants age 5 and up will be expected to wear face coverings. Masks are preferred, but not required, for children under the age of 5. If you do not have a face covering, please let us know in advance so that we can provide one for you.

Knowing When to Stay Home

Do not attend a Harris Center outing if you or anyone in your household is experiencing symptoms or has recently been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19. If you must stay home, take heart: there is still plenty of nature to be enjoyed out your window, in your yard, or from your front stoop.

We are monitoring COVID-19 developments carefully, and may change these protocols as needed. In the meantime, we very much look forward to exploring nearby nature with you again, safely and in keeping with the protection of the most vulnerable among us. Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns. Thank you.
