National Great Outdoors Month 2020 reminds us to practice responsible recreation this year as we explore our nation's waterways or plan a family camping trip to a nearby park. June is the perfect month to appreciate the benefits that come along with time spent outdoors while taking extra care to be responsible about how you go about it.
Use these helpful tips as you plan your responsible Great Outdoors Month camping or fishing adventures:
If you're wondering about National Great Outdoors Month history, the Senate officially designated June 2019 as Great Outdoors Month. Great Outdoors Week actually began under President Clinton in 1998 and has grown under the Bush, Obama, and Trump administrations into a month-long celebration of the outdoors. Make plans to participate responsibly while experiencing the positive restorative benefits at a time when wellbeing is front and center.
