Great Outdoors Month and Get Outdoors Day (GO Day)
Great Outdoors Month helps to highlight the benefits of spending time and volunteering outside to individuals, families, communities and the nation. For example, through recreational activities such as fishing, skiing, biking, and nature watching, we can enjoy the outdoors while maintaining a healthier lifestyle. In addition, volunteerism for environmental education programs, local parks and nature conservancies helps to sustain park trails, restore wildlife habitats and protect our environment for future generations.
June 2010 will be the seventh annual Great Outdoors Month celebration.
In addition, June 12, 2010, will be National Get Outdoors Day (GO Day). GO Day is an annual event to encourage healthy, active outdoor fun. Participating partners will offer opportunities for American families to experience traditional and non-traditional types of outdoor activities.
