According to the National Wildlife Association, President Obama has proclaimed June as Great Outdoors Month, along with almost every state governor. The Presidential Proclamation urges all Americans to spend time in the great outdoors and to uphold our nation’s legacy of conserving our lands for future generations.

The Proclamation goes on to talk about the numerous opportunities for families and friends to explore, play, and grow together from hiking and wildlife watching to canoeing, hunting, fishing and playing in the neighborhood park, all activities that can help kids stay healthy, active and energized.

What does that mean? It means now is the time to get up and go outside and enjoy the great outdoors. Start by visiting and exploring a local park where you live.

So until next time, be safe in the sun and have a great day in the great outdoors.
