June 2022 has been designated as The Great Outdoors Month, with the partnerships of federal agencies including The White House, state governments, and private organizations making efforts to get citizens across The United States to get outside and enjoy activities that are offered throughout our great lands. This quote is from President Biden’s May 31, 2022 proclamation:
“During Great Outdoors Month, we celebrate our Nation’s vast array of parks, wildlife refuges, forests, monuments, marine sanctuaries, waters, national conservation lands, and other natural treasures. Every day, Americans across the country draw inspiration and pride from the beauty of our magnificent outdoor spaces….. Boundless outdoor spaces across the country unite Americans of every age and background for hiking, fishing, canoeing, hunting, exploring, reflecting, and finding solace. As part of my Administration’s efforts to advance equity, diversity, and inclusion, we are committed to ensuring that everyone can access and enjoy America’s great outdoors. Outreach efforts — including the National Park Service’s Rivers, Trails, and Conservation Assistance program — expand trails, conserve rivers, and restore green space so that more people can benefit. We are also enhancing safe outdoor resources for communities so that more people can participate in healthy, active outdoor recreation and enjoy the physical and spiritual nourishment it provides.” Said President Joe Biden.
We are excited to see a great deal of attention towards our wilderness and nature. River Riders is happy to be able to share the outdoors with guests around the world and show what West Virginia has to offer. We are fortunate to have a good relationship with The Harpers Ferry Historical National Park and be able to showcase what the confluence of the Shenandoah and Potomac Rivers has to offer.
River Riders offers many trips for you to relax and reflect on how to be more in one with nature. Whether it is tubing past Harpers Ferry Historical National Park or flatwater Canoeing on the Potomac, we want everyone to experience what it means to be in the great outdoors. Get out to Harpers Ferry and celebrate The Great Outdoors Month. Book your trip with River Riders Here!
