June 11 is National Get Outdoors Day

Saturday, June 11, 2011, will mark the third consecutive year of National Get Outdoors Day. Also known as GO-Day, the specially designated day encourages people everywhere to get outside and reconnect with nature.

Childhood obesity is a growing problem in the United States, as the average child spends 7.5 hours per day in front of a screen. To combat inactivity, GO-Day is an outgrowth of Get Outdoor USA! Last year, over 25,000 families and children participated in GO-Day events. Whether you decide to take a far away trip to explore the outdoors or simply venture out to a local park, get active.

If you are a first time visitor or a returning outdoor enthusiast, be sure to look into special events and discounts!

Other locations will also have information focusing on sustainability, nutrition and the environment. Get the whole scoop here and plan your day.
