June is Great Outdoors Month. In June, 1998, President Clinton announced Great Outdoors Week to give a boost to the economy and the outdoor recreation industry. It continued to be popular through other Presidents’ administrations and was eventually expanded to the whole month of June. There is no better time to explore what nature and our beautiful country has to offer than Great Outdoors Month.
