DeKalb Outdoors Day

Jun 13, 2015
10:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.
Smithville Public Square

Did you know children in the United States average 45 hours a week exposed to electronic media, and only 30 minutes a week to unregulated time outdoors?

National Get Outdoors Day is an annual event across the country working to introduce our youth to recreational activities and the wonders of our Nation's landscapes. Kids and their families are encouraged to spend time outdoors, exploring the natural world and enjoying various outdoor recreation activities. Experiencing our Nation's natural splendor contributes to healthier lives for our citizens and a deeper appreciation for the great outdoors. Get Outdoors Day helps to combat the effects of indoor, inactive lifestyles which are fueling the nation's obesity epidemic and threatening today's children with shorter life expectancies than their parents.

The second annual National Get Outdoors Day in DeKalb County will be Saturday, June 13 at Evins Park on the Smithville Public Square from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. There will be booths for the various participating groups. Organizers hope to feature activities like:

Health & Fitness
Nature & Wildlife
Arts & Crafts
Scavenger Hunt/Relays
Ornamental/Edible Horticulture
Outdoor Games
Scouts and other Local Outdoor Clubs
Other activities related to Outdoors & Health

Recent medical reports predict a two to five year life expectancy decline for America's youth due to current sedentary lifestyles. By participating in this year's event, you can help change that statistic for DeKalb County's youth. Organizers hope to reach families across the county, bringing attention to youth and the community, while displaying local businesses.

If you or your business would be interested in becoming a part of DeKalb County's second annual "Get Outdoors Day" please fill out and return an application or call Alejandra Cisneros Conohan at 931-520-9630 or email at You may also call Sarah Peace at 931-858-3125 or email
