Daines, Peters Bipartisan Resolution to Designate “Great Outdoors Month” Passes U.S. Senate

U.S. SENATE – U.S. Senators Steve Daines, top Republican on the Senate National Parks Subcommittee, and Gary Peters’ bipartisan resolution designating June 2022 as “Great Outdoors Month” passed the United States Senate. 

“As a fifth generation Montanan and avid sportsman, I’m glad to designate June 2022 as ‘Great Outdoors Month.’ From hunting, to fly-fishing, to backpacking, exploring the great outdoors is part of our Montana way of life. I encourage folks to get outside and experience everything our national parks and public lands have to offer,” Daines said.

“From Sleeping Bear Dunes to Pictured Rocks, Michigan is known for its iconic natural wonders. These unique national treasures showcase the best of what our state has to offer,” Peters said. “Designating June as Great Outdoors Month recognizes the need to protect our national parks and other public lands, lakeshores and waters in Michigan and across the country for generations to come, and preserves these economic resources.”
