What is National Get Outdoors Day?

Started in 2008, this day is intended to inspire and motivate Americans to get outside for a “healthy, fun day of outdoor adventure”. While the original website has since been taken down, the day itself has taken off. Parks across the nation continue to celebrate each year.
