Great Ideas to GO!

Get Outdoors Weekend
April 13-15, 2012

Getting outdoors isn't difficult or expensive. Anyone can do it, with nothing more than a pair of shoes and a sense of adventure. Grab a friend and explore your outdoors, be it at home, down the block or across the province!

  • Walk your dog (or borrow your neighbors)
  • Visit a playground
  • Ride your bike, rollerblade or go skateboarding
  • Play tag!
  • Go birdwatching!
  • Grab some friends and play a game:
    1. Soccer, Frisbee, football, street hockey, whatever you like!
  • Explore your backyard and get in the spring spirit by taking out all your lawn furniture.
  • Work in your garden
  • Go hiking!
  • Visit a local nature centre or connect with a local nature Club
  • Move your gym routine outdoors
  • Go puddle jumping!
  • Visit one of Alberta's 480 Provincial Parks and Recreational Areas.
