National Get Outdoors Day

Tomorrow is National Get Outdoors Day, a new annual event to encourage healthy, active outdoor fun. Prime goals of the day are reaching first-time visitors to public lands and reconnecting our youth to the great outdoors.

You can experience a forest right in the heart of Midtown. Did you know that Overton Park is home to a 10,000 year old old-growth forest? See it for yourself! Tomorrow the Citizens to Preserve Overton Park will be leading a free hike through the trails. (It's a leisurely, family friendly one mile stretch.) Meet at the parking lot near Rainbow Lake at 10am.
