Great Outdoors Month 2021


Being outdoors is a great Pacific Northwest tradition, and in recent years, even the president of the United States has declared it a thing. Here is the most recent proclamation, delivered on June 1, 2021. And following are a list of books that can help you take it to the great outdoors (We have many, many more in the store -- come in and talk with a bookseller)!

"America’s great outdoors, diverse landscapes, and pristine waterways are a limitless source of pride, inspiration, and sustenance of both body and soul — and an essential part of our national identity.  It is our shared responsibility as Americans to be good stewards of these irreplaceable treasures for our children and grandchildren, and for generations to come.  During Great Outdoors Month, we celebrate our Nation’s natural wonders, and rededicate ourselves to conserving nature’s splendor for all Americans and safeguarding our environment against the existential threat of climate change and other challenges."

Joseph R. Biden
