Active living

Walking is one of the safest and easiest forms of exercise. It’s also one of the best things you can do for your health.

People who walk regularly live longer, get sick less often and enjoy a greater sense of well-being. Unwind after work by walking through your neighborhood. Or take your family on a nature scavenger hunt at your favorite trail or nearby park.

Take advantage of the nicer weather and get outside to enjoy the benefits of walking!

Bat safety

Bats are active in Washington in spring and summer. Because bats in Washington can be infected with rabies, never handle a bat with your bare hands.

If you find a bat in your house, close the room's doors and windows. Wait until the bat lands on the floor or a wall. Wearing thick gloves, capture the bat in a can or box without touching it. Seal the container and call Clark County Public Health. We will help determine whether people or pets in your home may have been exposed and can arrange to test the bat for rabies if needed.
