COVID-19 Resources and Updates

Note: As of December 7, 2020, we have temporarily closed down our offices and gear libraries per the latest stay-at-home orders for the Bay Area. Please contact with any questions and we hope to see you in January! 

Welcome to our COVID-19 Resources and Updates page. You can find information about our upcoming virtual programs, updated guidelines from local health departments, tips on how to spend time outdoors safely, ideas on where to go to avoid potential crowds, and resources for curriculum to use with youth while learning at home. We hope you all stay healthy and find ways to engage with the outdoors safely! 

June Lunch and Learn Series

Join BAWT staff for one, two, or all three of our Lunch and Learn workshops throughout the month of June. These workshops will explore ways of getting outdoors this summer. No matter how much experience you’re bringing to the conversation, all are welcome. We look forward to supporting you in your outdoor adventures this summer.

Where can I go?

 Urban Access Map – Bay Area Parks & Trails

This map is designed to give the community information about where students and their families can receive Grab and Go food as well as local parks and trails that are still accessible. The following document will give you more information about how you can find a trail near you or even add your own favorite natural space in the city – Instructions for Urban Access Map
