June 9, 2012 is National Get Outdoors Day.
National Get Outdoors Day is a new annual event to encourage healthy, active outdoor fun. Participants from federal agencies, nonprofit organizations and the recreation industry are again teaming up to host the 5th annual National Get Outdoors Day (GO Day) to encourage healthy, active outdoor fun at sites across the nation. On Saturday, June 9, 2012, these diverse partners will offer opportunities for American families to experience traditional and non-traditional types of outdoor activities. Prime goals of the day are reaching currently underserved populations and first-time visitors to public lands, and reconnecting our youth to the great outdoors.
There are 124 National Get Outdoors Day sites across the country. To find one close to you, visit this website.
