GO_day

The 7th annual National Get Outdoors Day is on June 14, 2014. This event encourages healthy, active outdoor lives and embraces our parks, forests, refuges and other public lands and waters. Participating partners will offer opportunities for American families to experience traditional and non-traditional types of outdoor activities.

Get Outside Day event actives will offer a mix of information centers, “active fun” areas, places where guests (especially kids) can use a fishing pole, go geocaching, help pitch a tent and more. Many sites also feature areas that focus on other aspects of healthy living, including sustainability and good nutrition.

The sites will also provide photo opportunities with characters like Smokey Bear and Woodsy Owl.

In addition to the days events, participants will be invited to nearby follow-up activities called EchO events occurring throughout the summer, which include introductions to mountain biking and fly-fishing, hikes with rangers to see wildlife, kayaking and rafting and much more.
