COVID-19

Given our present health crisis, Green Foothills will not hold any in-person gatherings until we know it is safe to do so. Your health and well-being are important to us and we are currently planning ways in which to engage you in the important work we do through other means.

As you know, we have worked together for nearly 60 years to protect nature close to home, so please enjoy the fruits of our labor if possible. Getting out into nature can help reduce anxiety and might even boost your immune system, so we strongly encourage you to hike, walk, or bike close to home.

To unite our community during this time when we can’t physically be together, we encourage you to share photos from your outings on social media* with hashtags: #GreenFoothills #stayhealthy

*If you are not active on social media but want to share your photos, feel free to send us an email with your favorite photos from your hikes
