ANN ARBOR – University of Michigan’s Matthaei-Nichols botanical gardens and arboretum has launched a fun new campaign to encourage families to enjoy the outdoors this month.

Its #everydayoutdoors campaign challenges families to complete a series of outdoor activities like rolling down hills, finding animal tracks and foraging for acorns.

“The campaign is part of our effort to urge families to get outside every day, no matter the weather, to observe and engage with nature,” read an announcement. “These easy, low-barrier activities don’t require a garden or a defined space. The only thing you need to do is get outside!”
