Come on out the weather is nice.

Are Americans Afraid of the Outdoors? I hope not. But that's what recent research on visitation rates of natural areas like national parks has found. Getting outside is good for you. Perfect for exercise, recreation, and nature walking.

But this makes having urban outdoor adventures even more important. Enjoy the nature in your immediate vicinity. Then venture further, to the park, a state park or nature preserve. Notice the variety of plants and animals and the change in landscape. So let's get out there more. Plan a day trip or afternoon outing with friends and family. Need quiet time to yourself? Visit your local natural area for a morning walk or an after work/school unwind.
