Just get out there and do it now before you waste the day away.

Participants from federal agencies, nonprofit organizations and the recreation industry are teaming up to host the 8th annual National Get Outdoors Day (GO Day) to encourage healthy, active outdoor fun at sites across the nation.

TODAY these diverse partners will offer opportunities for American families to experience traditional and non-traditional types of outdoor activities. Prime goals of the day are reaching currently under-served populations and first-time visitors to public lands, and reconnecting our youth to the great outdoors.

National Get Outdoors Day supports America’s Great Outdoors initiative by actively promoting programs and projects that encourage use of the outdoors by the public. Fee-free days are offered on multiple occasions throughout the year. The 2015 remaining days are National Public Lands Day (9/26) and Veterans Day (11/ 11).
