Summer Kickoff

Get Outdoors Day Invites Family Fun




The Get Outdoors Day (GO-Day), on June 11, reconnects thousands of Americans, especially urban youths, with the great outdoors. Scores of expert-guided fishing, kayaking, rafting, hiking, mountain biking, wall climbing, geocaching (GPS-based treasure hunting) and wildlife activities will introduce people to their city, state and national parks and nearby wildlife refuges.

Metropolitan areas, accessible by public transportation and walking, encourage GO-Day visits by those unfamiliar with available recreation in public lands and waters. It’s the perfect start to affordable, summer-long fun.

See events list at www.NationalGetOutdoorsDay.org. Locate various parks online by searching “Find a state park” and “Find a national park” or “Find a wildlife refuge.”
