Get Outdoors Day is a nationwide celebration that provides opportunities for people to get outdoors and try new activities. Hosted in collaboration between the Minneapolis Park and Rec Board, the National Park Service, REI, the Minnesota DNR, the Forest Service and others, this year’s Get Outdoors Day will be full of free and fun activities to try!
Join a canoe paddle on Powderhorn Lake, go mountain biking, learn to fish, play camp games, go birding, get creative with nature crafts, try your hand at archery, learn geocaching skills, try the climbing wall, or just hang out and roast some marshmallows. There’s no wrong way to celebrate, just as long as you get outdoors!
This event is free, family-friendly and open to everyone. No registration needed, just show up ready to have fun outdoors!
