Local Hiking Trails to Enjoy
When enjoying the great outdoors, please remember these stormwater-savvy tips so that we can continue appreciating these beautiful hiking areas for years to come.
Stormwater-Savvy Tips While Hiking
1. Prep your Backpack
Before heading out, prep your backpack with essentials to get you through the day. You’ll need sunscreen, lunch, plenty of snacks, and a small drawstring trash bag. With a “Pack-It-In, Pack-It-Out” mindset you’ll be ready to collect your own trash and any litter you may find along the way. We recommend a drawstring trash bag to easily fasten to your backpack or carabiner.
2. Reusable vs. Plastic
Stay hydrated with a reusable water bottle. This helps prevent plastic pollution and keeps water chilled longer, which is a nice refresher on scorching summer days.
3. Pick Up After Your Pet
Dogs are the perfect hiking buddies! When our pet pals tag along for an adventure in the great outdoors, remember to clean up after them. Be stormwater savvy by clipping doggie-doo bags to your carabiner on the way out the door. Make sure to grab their portable water bowl too!
