June 14 is National Get Outdoors Day!
Participants from federal
agencies, nonprofit organizations and the recreation industry are again teaming
up to host the 7th annual National Get Outdoors Day (GO Day) to encourage
healthy, active outdoor fun at sites across the nation. On Saturday, June 14,
2014, 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. GO
Day is an outgrowth of the Get Outdoors USA! campaign, which encourages
Americans, especially our youth, to seek out healthy, active outdoor lives and
embrace our parks, forests, refuges and other public lands and waters.
Along with getting outdoors and
having a great time, every girl in Girl Scouts can show her nature, conservation
and parks spirit with a colorful patch developed for National Get Outdoors Day.
Check that out here.
