Celebrate the Great Outdoors

June is Great Outdoors Month.

So designated by presidential proclamation, Great Outdoors Month is intended to celebrate the natural world and to encourage Americans to get outside and to uphold and engage in conservation efforts.

Included in the month are National Trails Day (June 3), National Fishing and Boating Week (June 3–11), National Get Outdoors Day (June 16), Great Outdoors Month National Day of Service (June 17), and Get into Your Sanctuary Days (June 24–25). Two other related events, National Marina Days and the Great American Campout (with its signature event on June 24), run Memorial Day through Labor Day.
