The U.S. Forest Service is providing some incentive to get outside on National Get Outdoors Day.

The National Forests and Grasslands in Texas is waiving fees at day-use recreation sites June 8 for National Get Outdoors Day.

“We hope this free day offers an incentive to all people to experience the great outdoors in our forests and grasslands,” Forest Supervisor Eddie Taylor said.

Camping fees remain in effect, but day-use fees will be waived on Saturday, June 8 at these recreation areas and trails:

They've been doing this for over a decade now and we can expect an early Saturday in June to be GO Day, and the U.S. Forest Service will waive fees for entry into all National Parks.

It's a pretty cool idea, and with technology taking over our lives more and more each day, I think it's important to set aside a day to remember the beauty all around us.
