Summer Begins This Month, So celebrate It With These June Nature Holidays

Since June is the month that ushers in summer and warmer weather, it’s time for many people to leave their homes and take in the splendor of nature. There are pristine beaches, lush forests, and amazing mountaintops for people to enjoy, and all around them, Mother Nature is ready to embrace them and hold them to her bosom.

Of course, it all depends on whether people are willing to come out of their comfort zone, leave their electronic devices behind and actually enjoy the beauty offered up by nature.¬†Getting people out of their comfort zones, and out of their homes, isn’t always easy. Fortunately, there are some June holidays that do make an effort to convince the home-bound to get outdoors and get moving.

We’ve selected the best of the best of these holidays that celebrate nature so that we can recommend them to everyone reading today. We sincerely hope that the following June nature holidays inspire people to head out on an adventure. Perhaps to take a hike on a trail, or kayak on the river. We don’t know what you specifically are into, but you get the general idea. With that said, let’s take a look at the following June nature holidays.

World Reef Awareness Day (June 1st)

Okay, this isn’t just a nature holiday but is also a day that raises awareness about a big problem: the destruction of world reefs. Of course, it’s also a day when people can take the time to take a dip in the Great Barrier Reef and see why it’s one of the most popular destinations on the planet. Snorkeling here is a great way to observe this holiday and see something few people in the world will ever get to experience personally.

National Prairie Day (June 3rd)

Prairies are large areas of savannas, shrublands, and grasslands that have a moderate amount of rainfall each year. Although they can be found around the world, the word prairie is most commonly associated with the prairies of North America. In other parts of the world, they are known by other names. No matter what they’re called where you live, however, this is a day to explore the diverse plant and animal life that depends on these natural areas.

National Trails Day (June 3rd)

All around the world are thousands of miles of trails that people can enjoy. Just in the U.S. alone, there are over 88,000 miles in America’s National Trails System. That’s 11 National Scenic Trails and 19 National Historic Trails. And that’s not even counting all of the trails at the State level. So, it appears that people have a lot of walking to do on this lovely June day, so they should probably get right to it.

National Gardening Exercise Day (June 6th)

This day isn’t so much dedicated to nature as it is dedicated to getting people to get to work in their gardens. Working with the soil can not only be calming and incredibly rewarding, but it’s good exercise. It’s also a chance for people to get some fresh air and sunlight. So if you have a garden, this is the day to work it, and if you don’t have a garden, then this is definitely the day to start one.

World Oceans Day (June 8th)

Although the main purpose of this holiday is to raise people’s awareness about the role that the ocean plays in our ecosystem, we also find that this is a holiday that’s perfect for recreation as well. Anyone who is capable should take the time to go swim in the ocean on this day, or at least take a ride on an ocean vessel. Nothing is as beautiful or as powerful as the ocean, and we definitely recommend people appreciate it on this day.

National Go Fishing Day (June 18th)

The last holiday we would like to recommend during June is National Go Fishing Day. We feel there’s probably no better way to reconnect with nature than casting your line into the water and catching a fish. It’s a great way to enjoy nature, and if you have any amount of skill, a great way to catch your dinner for the day. Sounds like fun to us.

Well, that does it for us today, people. Those are all of the June nature holidays that we’d like to recommend. Although all of these holidays happen before it officially becomes Summer, we know that the weather is probably still likely to be very good, so head out there and enjoy nature in all of its splendor!
