National Get Outdoors Day 2014
National Get Outdoors Day is an exciting national event to encourage healthy, active outdoor fun!
Participants from federal, state, and local agencies, nonprofit organizations and the recreation industry are again teaming up to host the annual National Get Outdoors Day (GO Day) to encourage healthy, active outdoor fun at sites across the nation.
On Saturday, June 14, 2014, these diverse partners will offer opportunities for American families to experience traditional and non-traditional types of outdoor activities throughout the United States -- and right here in Vancouver, Washington!
Prime goals of the day are reaching currently underserved populations and first-time visitors to public lands, and reconnecting our youth to the great outdoors.
