Responsible Recreation: AOT has collaborated with outdoor recreation management agencies at the federal, state and local levels to create Responsible Recreation Across Arizona, a one-stop resource with guidelines on enjoying spectacular Arizona landscapes while adhering to COVID-19 physical distancing guidelines. 

The latest responsible recreation updates include statewide fire safety and restriction information plus guidance on summer recreation in the state’s deserts. With so many Arizonans turning to the outdoors as a great escape, it’s critical to approach these activities with a protective mindset, as these agencies remain committed to keeping all public lands open and accessible while protecting staff and visitors. This resource is updated regularly and can be shared with Arizonans and visitors alike.
