Equalizing Health Outcomes and Eliminating Health Disparities

Great Outdoors Month 


In 2004, President Bush proclaimed June: “Great Outdoors Month” in recognition of the increased activity of vacationers and adventures across the country around that time every year. This month is intended to promote physical activity and should be celebrated by everyone around the country by taking advantage of the gorgeous summer weather and going outside.
 
From the Appalachian Mountains to the Grand Canyon, America is blessed with places of natural beauty where our citizens can discover the full splendor of this great Nation. During Great Outdoors Month, our Nation celebrates the grandeur of our open spaces, strengthens our commitment to preserving this heritage, and reaffirms our dedication to protecting our air, water, and lands.
 
Great Outdoors Month is an opportunity to honor those who work to keep our natural places beautiful and to celebrate some of our country's favorite outdoor pastimes. These activities encourage a healthy lifestyle and give Americans pride in the great American landscape. As responsible stewards of our natural resources, we can help ensure that the great outdoors will be available for enjoyment by generations to come.
