National Get Outdoors Day in Greenfield Village
June 7, 2014 (10am – 4pm)
Celebrate National Get Outdoors day in Greenfield Village, one of 11 national signature sites for this event in 2013. Activities are free of charge with membership or regular Greenfield Village admission.

Championed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the U.S. Forest Service, National Get Outdoors Day is a new annual event to encourage healthy, active outdoor fun. Greenfield Village will offer opportunities for American families to experience traditional and non-traditional types of outdoor activities. Prime goals of the day are introducing first-time visitors to public lands and reconnecting our youth to the great outdoors.
