Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of Great Outdoors Month.

On June 5th of 2019, the US Senate officially designated June 2019 as ’Great Outdoors Month.’

‘Great Outdoors Week’ began under President Clinton in 1998 and has grown under the Bush, Obama, Trump and Biden administrations into a month-long celebration of the outdoors. Since 2008, governors from across the country have joined in designating June as a month to celebrate the great outdoors and more than half the states have already proclaimed June 2019 as Great Outdoors Month!

A presidential proclamation is made every year. The following is an extract from the 2021 by President Joe Biden:

America’s great outdoors, diverse landscapes, and pristine waterways are a limitless source of pride, inspiration, and sustenance of both body and soul — and an essential part of our national identity.  It is our shared responsibility as Americans to be good stewards of these irreplaceable treasures for our children and grandchildren, and for generations to come.  During Great Outdoors Month, we celebrate our Nation’s natural wonders, and rededicate ourselves to conserving nature’s splendor for all Americans and safeguarding our environment against the existential threat of climate change and other challenges.

During Great Outdoors Month, the president encourages all Americans to explore our Nation’s beautiful outdoor spaces.  As we enjoy the great outdoors — from national parks to our own backyards — let us rededicate ourselves to conserving our Nation’s natural spaces for our own well-being, and for the health, safety, prosperity, and fulfillment of generations to come.
