Dog photos - happy to be home with my pet who is by my side all day while working at home and normally I don't get to spend this much time with her!
00:43:59Madison Kinder - Eastern Washington Univ.
Was OSU able to keep their student staff to run the remote programs or is this done by professional staff?
00:48:28Jason Darby - Southern Miss
I’ve heard some programs doing geocaching. However is anyone running into any issues with their university discouraging that type of activity if your in a shelter-in-place order?
00:48:39Jason Darby - Southern Miss
00:48:59Madison Kinder - Eastern Washington Univ.
Yes - we have a travel ban at our university too so as staff we cannot travel to take these videos
00:49:53Justin Cato - A&M-Commerce
We've been told to even shut down our disc golf course. it's open access, but the police are kicking people out there and in our hammock grove
00:50:18Donald Schmit, Washington State University
We are doing a variety of similar programming to OSU.. We did our regular ShePoops program about women's hygiene in the outdoors. We've got a few remote programs about our adaptive climbing and kayaking programs.
00:50:43Donald Schmit, Washington State University
We are still operating our bike share program though. It was considered critical transportation infrastructure
00:50:49Trey Knight, Univ of Miami (FL)
We can encourage people to get out for walks, runs, etc. but need to do it from their home to what is hyper local
00:50:54Bradley Gasawski - Central Washington University
CWU - educational videos posted to social media/website. Some live feeds & pre-recorded content. Outdoor hiking & cycling challenges with incentive prizes. Weekly highlights of local places to get outside. Earthweek virtual cleanup in your favorite local outdoor destinations. Our facility is closed and we are not allowed to go there. We are in a travel ban so we can't travel to showcase different activities locations to get outside and recreate.
00:51:10Christina Spohn (VCU)
At VCU, we are posting some Instagram challenges for outdoor social distancing and mailing out prizes to folk who participate
00:51:24Jacob Norris East Tennessee State University
We will be hosting a webinar for East Tennessee with local recreation leaders to give an update to our region on outdoor recreation practices on Earth Day - gives enough time for the local policies to solidify
00:51:38Bradley Gasawski - Central Washington University
We are trying to navigate the "stay at home" order in Washington state.
00:51:50Devon Dorn (Grand Canyon University)
We are doing knot tying clinics on instagram
00:51:52Kristy Elliott, Georgia Southern University
We have told our students that they do not have to return their bike share bikes to us unless they don't need it. So there are still a handful of students using their bikes to get out to exercise and get around our town.
00:52:12Reed Mathieson. Sonoma State University
We are also continuing our bike rental program for the same reason and are putting some SOPs in for receiving the bikes at the end of the semester for cleaning an protecting students
00:52:18Meg Van De Walle
how are prizes/rewards being distributed for these challenges?
Old Dominion has a Strava group going to encourage physical activity while maintaining appropriate distance from others. It's fun to compare miles and activities. Weekly challenge winners get prizes.
00:52:38Trey Knight, Univ of Miami (FL)
We have posted Google Earth Explore links and are posting tech videos about knots, cooking, gear, etc.
00:53:07Jerrell Kelly - WKU
At WKU, we've set up a Strava Club for folks to take part in and put together resources for folks to get out on their own
00:53:26Christina Spohn (VCU)
Hello! We are distributing our prizes by ordering them directly from vendors (we picked 4 vendors and contacted them beforehand so we wouldn't violate any pro discount agreements) and shipping straight to winners.
00:54:04Marci Iverson, Viterbo University
Wisconsin state schools are collaborating to offer a virtual run/walk the week of April 19-26. Here is the link: http://www.mywirsa.com/run-with-rec.html
00:55:34Zachary Hammerle - Western Oregon University
Online content workshops; using QR codes for challenges trying to blend fitness and outdoor together as much as we can. Most of the same
00:57:38Trey Knight, Univ of Miami (FL)
We are planning on updating climbing wall cleaning for when a re-open happens
00:58:25Bradley Gasawski - Central Washington University
We have been creating new OP's for how to deal with a transition back to "normalcy" as it relates to renting gear and trips programming.
00:58:42Zachary Hammerle - Western Oregon University
Training videos for staff now to speed up re intro
00:59:13Zachary Hammerle - Western Oregon University
Same with other trainings doing as much as we can online now, hands on later.
00:59:14Trey Knight, Univ of Miami (FL)
Developing videos to help with staff training in prep for fall as well
00:59:31Donald Schmit, Washington State University
We are looking at more defined cleaning policies for when our rental shop reopens. I've also been building a list of youtube videos on using the equipment we rent so that I can keep my staff trained as we get closer to reopening.
01:00:06Chris Muller - UTA
Would love to hear people's plans for cleaning their climbing wall before reopening.
01:00:17Cynthia Rabbers, Penn State University
One of the things we are trying to figure out is what happens with boat rentals? By the time we reopen our boat rentals would theoretically be open except the boats are all in winter storage which for some means they are up the hill in the maintenance shop while others are sort of stacked in the rental shed.
01:00:53Christina Spohn (VCU)
Yeah I am curious as to how folks are using this to refine policies and procedures for the future
01:00:57Alex Hauer- UNCG
Eldorado has a Covid-19 page with cleaning information
01:01:17Katie Hecker San Diego State University
How are other universities in stay at home areas with park closures (facilities and parking areas, trails still open) encouraging students to go outside? We are experiencing barriers to getting to local trails in San Diego County
01:01:53Donald Schmit, Washington State University
Not a great answer on climbing walls but I've heard various reports of the longest COVID lasts is 3-9 days when on surfaces. A 2 week closures would serve as a sort of quarantine from any infections on the wall
01:03:31Adam Burke (Wyoming)
How are folks facilitating getting their rental equipment return that was checked out prior to COVID Closures?
01:04:00Zachary Hammerle - Western Oregon University
We are not renting gear for the term
01:04:02Madison Anderson (Ohio State)
dropping through our boat yard gate... pro staff collect
Same as Madison.
01:04:42Kristy Elliott, Georgia Southern University
Same as Madison too.
01:05:13Shannon Richardson, University of Mississippi
Ole Miss is not renting gear currently
01:05:23Donald Schmit, Washington State University
For rental returns that were already out, we reopened for a single day after spring break only for returns. We got about 50% of equipment back. The rest are allowed to keep their equipment until we are open again. No late fees will be incurred.
@adam - settin up appointments with no late fees, collecting with gloves and putting in a space to let sit for a few weeks before it's checked back in
01:06:09Madison Kinder - Eastern Washington Univ.
EWU Facilities are all closed which means we cannot rent gear as well. At least until May 30th by our term ends mid June.
01:06:17Cathy Stedman, UGA
Rentals currently out will not be returned until we open again. Communication about rental returns includes care and storage for items.
side note, LNT is offering a remote version of their LNT Instructor course - great thing to offer via social media
01:07:28Reed Mathieson. Sonoma State University
We have a possibly unique situation where the county is taking over our facility as an overflow cover-19 hospital. One of our biggest concerns besides cleaning, is student perception and being scared to reengage with the rec center
01:09:23Zachary Hammerle - Western Oregon University
Are other schools asking for lost rev. For insurance?
I know we are all doing our best at getting online programs/clinics/ content out there. Anyone have any insight as to if students are watching / responding to these?
01:09:58Lance Haynie Univ. of Georgia
I think a school from New Hampshire said something to this effect on another webinar
01:10:07Lance Haynie Univ. of Georgia
overflow hospital space
We are tracking social media engagment with views and shares, comments, etc.
Instead of our regular numbers that we track like rentals, trips run, etc.
01:11:01Bradley Gasawski - Central Washington University
we are coming back from an extended spring break, so we'll find out in the next couple weeks how engaged students will be.
With our staff we are encouraging the power of positive summit and are also doing trainings that students can get paid for participating in.
01:11:56Madison Anderson (Ohio State)
Students are working remotely through the Office 365 platform on shared documents, taking this time to update manuals, create training videos
we are having the same problem at Tennessee Martin too, we can't pay them either. We are just waiting to see what happens
HI folks. Something to consider: If you are investing the time to make things virtual/recorded/video based, it may be worth keeping a portion of your programming in that format after this crisis subsides. Might be a great way to justify work and fees, as well as possibly serve as an engagement tool to those who otherwise wouldn't be participating in your programs.
01:15:53Alli Hughes- U. of Utah
That is a very good point/idea.
01:15:55Kourtney Woracek - Texas A&M at Galveston
Students are allowed to work remotely. Student Affairs is allowing students to call other students and checkup on them. Make sure they are being helped as needed. Additionally, LInkedIn Learn for students to get some hours.
01:16:09Ben Wygant, Red Rocks Community College
At RRCC, we created a public blog where we can provide content for the campus community. Student employees and alums contribute trip reports, photography, cooking demos, gear recommendations, etc. Solid engagement thus far.
01:17:03Bradley Gasawski - Central Washington University
That's great Elizabeth! I like it.
With my lifeguards, I am not pushing any trainings at this time. However I am having office hours open for lifeguards. That way I am still reaching out and they know I am still there to support them.
01:18:03Adam Burke (Wyoming)
Wyoming has made the decision to pay student staff for all future missed shifts for the remainder of the semester whether they work or not. It’s a great service and commitment to student staff, but it also removes some motivation for students to do work since they are paid if they do it or not.
01:18:04Katie Hecker San Diego State University
We use Blackboard to track leader training progress. We have checklists and videos for everything from belay training, equipment repair, group facilitation, etc. Once students are allowed to work remotely or come back they will be able to log in and start training before returning in August. No required training without pay.
01:19:14Zachary Hammerle - Western Oregon University
01:19:15Bradley Gasawski - Central Washington University
At CWU, we are not allowed to offer training at this time. Last word was no on paying students, but we are hearing now that we might be able to pay students as long as we are actively engaging the student population. All training has been pushed back to late summer.
01:23:58Alli Hughes- U. of Utah
Thanks for hosting!
Thank you! Great Stuff!

Thank you for putting this on!

Sad but happy to see innovation
01:24:33Tony Dianda, San Jose State University
My student staff have really appreciated phone call check ins. They are getting a hundred emails a day from the university, their professors, the news...etc. so they have appreciated hearing the news from a voice that they trust (our professional staff) who can help them decipher what pertains to their specific situations and what doesn't.
01:24:50Luke Bartlett- Northern Iowa
Cheers from Northern Iowa!
01:24:51Laurie Braden - LSU
