It has been our pleasure to produce Get Outdoors Nevada Day each year for the communities around Nevada.
Get Outdoors Nevada is dedicated to connecting people of all backgrounds and ages to Nevada’s diverse outdoor places through education, service, and community engagement. We strive to foster and support a community that discovers, experiences and connects to our state’s many natural environments, from wild landscapes and recreational areas to urban trails and parks. Because our outdoor areas strengthen our economy and increase the local quality of life, Get Outdoors Nevada works to create a community that shares a respectful and protective relationship to our treasured outdoor spaces, both for today's residents and visitors, and for future generations alike.
We work across neighborhoods and jurisdictions to accomplish our mission by:
It is our goal at Get Outdoors Nevada (GON) to connect you to YOUR backyard, Nevada's diverse outdoor places. We invite you to visit our website at www.getoutdoorsnevada.org to learn more about us and our partners, how you help, what you can give and how to become part of GON.
Then come join us for Get Outdoors Nevada Day as we discover, experience, connect, get outside and get moving together in OUR backyard!
Nevada, this is YOUR backyard.
History of GON Day
Get Outdoors Nevada was offered the helm of the Get Outdoors Nevada Day event back in 2014. In partnering with all of the jurisdictions around the southern Nevada region, the idea was born to highlight and introduce the community to a great outdoor place in a different city each year.
This much-anticipated community event is a chance for people of all ages to get outside and celebrate all that we love about Nevada’s diverse outdoor places. From park and picnic fun with activities like rock climbing and fishing, to meeting outfitters and organizations featuring the latest in recreation opportunities. The event is a free and fun day out for the entire family.
In 2014 the event was held in North Las Vegas at Craig Ranch Regional Park, in 2015 it was held in Clark County’s Sunset Park, in 2016 it was held in the City of Las Vegas at Lorenzi Park and in 2017 the event took place in the City of Henderson at Cornerstone Park. On May 4 and 5, 2019, we will take the event to Boulder City's Spring Jamboree, at Wilbur Square, where we'll spread the word about Nevada's awesome outdoors to their 40,000 - 50,000 attendees.
