Enjoying the Solar Eclipse on Oregon’s Public Lands

Be Safe!

·        Understand risks, respect signs and barriers, and stay within your limits.
·        Most remote areas have limited services and facilities, so pack plenty of food and water.
·        Be prepared for warm temperatures and bring sun and eye protection.

Know Before You Go

·        Plan ahead to ensure a safe and fun experience.
·        Make sure you have the proper supplies and gear.­
·        Expect large crowds. Most lodging is booked. Options for camping are limited. 
·        Familiarize yourself with the rules and specific information about the site you are visiting.
·        Cell service may not be available, so plan your route in advance and pack a map.
·        Many roads on public lands are gravel and may require a high-clearance or four-wheel drive vehicle.

Recreate Responsibly

·        Help us protect our lands for all to enjoy.
·        Tread lightly and leave no trace. Leave your site better than you found it.
·        Remove all trash and remember to pack it in, pack it out!

Only YOU Can Prevent Wildfires

·        August is peak wildfire season in the Pacific Northwest. A small spark can rapidly become a large fire.
·        Know fire risks and respect fire restrictions, such as campfire bans.
·        Avoid parking or driving on dry grass as your vehicle can spark a wildfire.
·        Vehicles are required to have a shovel and fire extinguisher or gallon of water in many areas.
