It’s National Great Outdoors Month!
Designated in June of 2019, National Great Outdoors Month is a time to celebrate the outdoors and recognize the benefits of our national, state, and local trails and parks. The first Saturday in June kicks off the celebration with National Trails Day. The trails offer an abundance of things to do for the whole family, from birdwatching to extreme mountain biking.
America’s Trail Systems
The trail systems throughout the U.S., from urban to rural, offer places for restoration and solitude, endless learning opportunities, locations to move and exercise, and space for fun, laughter, and excitement. Make new memories this month by exploring a new trail or trying a new activity.
Plus five health benefits to spending time outdoors from Harvard Medical School:
- Vitamin D levels will go up
- You’ll get more exercise
- You’ll be happier
- Your concentration will improve
- You may heal faster
