June is Great Outdoors Month

June has been designated as the “Great Outdoors Month,” and what better way to celebrate the great outdoors than by engaging in your favorite outdoor activities?

The Great Outdoors Month was initially started under President Clinton in 1998. Since then, this event has grown into a month-long tradition under the Bush, Obama, and Trump administrations, according to the Great Outdoors Month campaign.

No matter where you live in the U.S., there are plenty of fun outdoor activities for you and your loved ones to participate in. Below are five activities you can participate in to help promote the great outdoors!

There are likely many hiking trails right in your backyard. HERE is a website you can use to find the closest hiking trails to you! Whether you want to explore the woods or do some scouting for the upcoming hunting season, hiking is a great way to have fun while getting some fresh air.

In most states, you can hunt predators, hogs, and other nuisance animals, such as sage rats, year-round. Before you head out, be sure to check your state’s hunting laws and regulations.

You can drop a line at a nearby pond, lake, or even the ocean! Fishing is the perfect summer adventure to do with friends and family. Don’t forget your fishing license and be sure to check your state’s fishing laws and regulations before you drop that line!

Whether it’s a motorboat, kayak, or canoe, spending time on the water is a great way to spend your summer. There is no better way to beat the heat than on the water vessel of your choice.

With the abundance of state and National Parks in the United States, camping is a must. Roasting marshmallows and counting stars by the campfire, with loved ones, is sure to create lasting memories for everyone.

This month get out there and enjoy the great outdoors! Remember: safety first, and always make sure to check your local laws and regulations before you head out!
