June’s sunny weather alone is a great reason to encourage your customers to hit the road for a weekend of outdoor fun, but did you know that the entire month is dedicated to the joys of the great outdoors? Although outdoor enthusiasts began recognizing June as National Camping Month as early as the 1970s, President Bill Clinton established National Great Outdoors Week in 1998 to celebrate America’s natural parks, forests, rivers, and lakes. Since 1998, other government entities have joined this commemorative effort, with the U.S. Senate officially declaring June as National Great Outdoors Month in 2019.

Throughout the month, different days are dedicated to the benefits and protection of the wilderness, along with reminders of how we can responsibly enjoy it.
