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.
