Great Outdoors Month® 2017 In Full Swing!

Great Outdoors Month® 2017 In Full Swing!

Great Outdoors Month® is off to a fantastic start! Almost one million participants have already joined the yearly celebration by getting outdoors during the first two Great Outdoors Month® events – the National Park Trust’s Kids to Parks™ Day and the American Hiking Society’s National Trails Day®. And the fun is just beginning!

June 3 - 11 is National Fishing and Boating Week, a national celebration of recreational boating and fishing. Many states are marking the week by holding free fishing days and in Massachusetts, the state’s Marine Trade Association is declaring June 10 “Massachusetts KIDS Boating Day” with four special events across the state!

The President and 40 governors have proclaimed June 2017 Great Outdoors Month® – and the final 10 are on their way! They encourage all Americans to get outdoors and enjoy healthy, active fun on America’s lands and waters. You can view and download the proclamations at greatoutdoorsmonth.org/proclamations.
