The outdoors fits into everyone’s life in unique and personal ways, and we here at WDFW want to foster connections with and appreciation of nature and all forms of outdoor recreation through our Life Outdoors resources.
So we’re posting informative blogs each month on a variety of topics to help you and your loved ones find new and exciting ways to get out there.
This month’s article gives ideas on how to get outside even when the weather is gloomy.
Opportunities galore during the month of November
The rainy, dark, colder seasons of fall and winter in Washington can carry a case of cabin fever if you let them keep you indoors.
Thankfully, the Life Outdoors knows no off season, so there are still plenty of options for getting outside to stretch your legs if you’re willing to gear up a little and maybe try something new.
In that spirit, we have gathered some ideas for ways to get you, your family, and friends out there despite the urge to hunker down inside with sweaters and hot cocoa.
Find out more by reading the blog:
