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.

Registration & Group Sizes

All in-person outings will be by registration only, with group size limited. In order to keep gatherings to a safe size, 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.


Masks are not required for vaccinated people on our outdoor outings. Masks are still required inside the Harris Center building.

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 more information becomes available. In the meantime, we very much look forward to exploring nearby nature with you, 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.
