Celebrate a Summer in the Wild!

Great things can happen when you explore. Don't let summer pass without trying a little or a lot of adventure outside.

Here are some ideas:

  1. Try a short walk around your neighborhood during a summer evening, a picnic at a city park, or a day hike on one of the local urban trails.
  2. Want a local adventure outside the city? Try backpacking or camping at a state or national park.
  3. Finally, the United States, North America, and the world are full of places to explore. Talk to a librarian to learn more!
