Looking for an excuse to get out of doors? Gov. Jerry Brown just gave you one.
Last week, he proclaimed June to be “Great Outdoors Month” in California. He said it builds on a 1998 declaration from then-President Bill Clinton that encouraged all Americans to get outside one week in June.
“… I invite all Californians to experience some small piece of the varied and magnificent land of California,” Brown wrote. “I would also ask that you donate to organizations that preserve our environment and volunteer as citizen stewards to protect campgrounds and hiking trails.”
