Great Outdoors Month is under way in June with a bevy of state and national proclamations aimed at promoting the annual event.

“The president signed the proclamation of Great Outdoors Month late yesterday. And we have almost all of the parallel proclamations by the nation’s governors,” Derrick Crandall, president of the American Recreation Coalition (ARC), stated in a news release. “We expect to repeat last year’s mark of every governor issuing a proclamation and anticipate that more than half will go beyond that and have a Great Outdoors Month event.”

“Again this year, a consortium of national associations and organizations active with June events asked for the proclamations to help highlight those events,” he added.

The National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds (ARVC) signed onto the national event.
