Why Get Outdoors PA?

Did you ever try fly fishing, nature photography, target shooting or backpacking?  Get Outdoors PA is a way for you and your whole family to learn or advance these recreation activities through active, outside, fun  programs. There is something for everyone! If you need an accommodation to participate in park activities due to a disability, please contact the park you plan to visit.

The high point for programming is National Get Outdoors Day which is June 13, 2015 but we have programming year around so keep an eye on the calendar...
