Get Outdoors

Today is National Get Outdoors Day, which is sponsored by the U.S. Forest Service. This event is intended to encourage healthy, active outdoor fun at sites across the nation.

Unfortunately, there aren't any official GO Day sites within the Warrendale neighborhood. (Yeah, I know. We'll have to work on getting something for Rouge Park next year.)

In the meantime, the closest location to us is at the Miller School in Greenfield Village at The Henry Ford (20900 Oakwood Blvd. in Dearborn). Visitors will be able to try fly-casting, count tree rings to learn the age of a tree and find directions with a compass. Younger children will have an opportunity to become Junior Forest Rangers and meet Smokey the Bear.
