Gov. Ron DeSantis has proclaimed June as Great Outdoors Month in Florida in recognition of the outstanding recreational opportunities provided by Florida’s natural resources, including parks, trails, public lands and waters. Great Outdoors Month is celebrated across the country each June, highlighting the fun, economic and health benefits of outdoor activity.
Great Outdoors Month focuses on celebrating our natural resources and encourages communities to come together to enjoy Florida’s public lands. From the rustic pine forests and rivers of North Florida to refreshing natural springs and white-sand beaches, all the way down to the tropical paradise of the Florida Keys, the state’s naturally diverse landscape is an outdoor playground for all ages. The Florida Department of Environmental Protection’s Florida Park Service and Office of Resilience and Coastal Protection are committed to providing visitors with experiences they will remember.
