There isn’t a better time of year than June if you love getting out and enjoying yourself! June is Great Outdoors Month which makes it is a great time to take a hike, bike, or swim; go fishing, boating, bird watching or camping. Exploring lakes, woodlands, rivers and woodlands is all a part of what Great Outdoors month is all about!

Great Outdoors Week started in 1998 and expanded to Great Outdoors Month in 2004. It aims to encourage more people to get out and enjoy the world around them, inspire them to enjoy their state’s scenic beauty, recreational opportunities and to renew their commitment to caring for natural resources. In our area there are many fun, free or inexpensive daily activities for families. Families can picnic at the PA Grand Canyon parks and then set out and hike one of the many trails. Or how about camping at a PA State park – either in a tent, a camper or cabin – and then swimming or fishing the day away! Families throughout PA can enjoy bike trails with both short and long trails. There are so many opportunities for fun when you get out there!

Bradford-Tioga Head Start, Inc. (BTHS) encourages all children and families enrolled in their program to get outdoors! BTHS staff lead by example all year long. They have attended outdoor activities such as the fall Mill Cove event near Mansfield and a Farm to Table event in Canton. On June 9th, they will be at the Family Day and Children’s Health Fair on the Green in Wellsboro; the Troy Fair on July 28th; Food, Farm and Family Festival held in Sayre on August 4th; and the Tioga County Fair on August 8th.

There is so much the great outdoors has to offer so, this month, the Great Outdoors Month, be sure to get out there and enjoy it! And if you happen to see any Bradford-Tioga Head Start, Inc. staff make sure to say hello!
