- Wye Marsh/Get Outdoors Festival
From 09 Sat Aug 2014 to 10 Sun Aug 2014
The Get Outdoors Festival is about creating fun and interactive opportunities to inspire people to get outside, get active and enjoy the stunning natural environment so close to home.
Canadians are spending less time in the outdoors and in contact with nature. The average North American spends 95% of their day indoors, with the average child spending only minutes a day doing an outdoor activity. This has led to the recognition and rise of nature deficit disorder, which has been identified as having a role to play in the rising rates of depression, attention deficit disorder, Vitamin D deficiency, and child obesity. We want to bring nature back into our lives and give people the opportunity to escape, explore and experience all that nature has to offer.
So join us August 9 & 10, 2014 to get paddling, biking, hiking, birding and
