National Great Outdoors Month
National Great Outdoors Month is a great month to get out and enjoy the outdoors. It’s an excellent opportunity to educate children about the importance of outdoor play and how it can help them live a healthier lifestyle. It’s often free or inexpensive for families to get out and have fun. It is a great way for children to learn about the environment and it can also be used as a basis for school projects.
In 1998, Great Outdoors Week was established. It became National Great Outdoors Month (NGOM) in 2004. It encourages more people to enjoy the outdoors, be it by getting out and exercising or participating in volunteer programs. The great outdoors has so much to offer, so this National Great Outdoors Month is a good time to get outside and enjoy it.
