How Are You Getting Outdoors This Month?

Great Outdoors Month

Craig Emerson | Pali Mountain

What a great way to get a kick-start on the summer with Great Outdoors Month! It’s a great opportunity to motivate yourself and encourage children on the importance of outside play, and how getting outside can be part of a healthy lifestyle. Getting out and about is often a free or cheap day out for families, and can be a lot of fun. Learn about nature and the environment during summer break.

Great Outdoors Week started in 1998 and expanded to Great Outdoors Month in 2004. It aims to encourage more people to get out and enjoy the world around them:  simply by exercising or taking part in volunteer programs. There is so much the great outdoors has to offer so, this Great Outdoors Month, why not get out there and enjoy it!

Take part in several National Outdoors Month events:
  • National Trails Day (June 3) - join activities such as hiking, biking and horseback riding.
  • National Get Outdoors Day (June 10), if  you want to experience traditional and non-traditional types of outdoor activities, this is the day for you.
  • Great Outdoors Day of Service (June 19) - volunteer your time towards helping the outdoors.  Take part in a service project to give back to mother nature.
