Saturday June 9, 2012 is National Get Outdoors day! This is the 4th year for the event. It is an annual event that is designed to encourage healthy and active outdoor fun. Currently there are 119 locations participating in National Get Outdoors Day. Is there one close to you? Mammoth Caves is the closest for us. We may try our own get outdoors day. Take a hike, explore nature. If you do get out enjoying the wild remember to pick up after yourself. If you do get out hiking remember to take along some good trail food. Here is a good hiking food recipe to keep the kids happy.
This event combined with the NWF Great American Backyard Campout on June 23 is a great way for families to get out and get exploring nature before the heat of July and August. That makes two great events for families just two weeks apart! Many great chances to enjoy the outdoors.
Will your family be participating in National Get Outdoors Day? If so, what will you be doing outdoors? Feel free to leave a comment. You might give someone else an idea of what they can do with their family outside!
