The Wild Days of Summer are perfect for going on a hike, kayaking down a river or for doing nothing at all — just sitting and enjoying the beauty of the great outdoors. Whether you're exploring a new local park or vacationing in a new wild place you’ve never seen before, summer is a time for adventure.
Let us help you get started with your summer adventure with our Wild Days of Summer campaign.
From the icy blue Arctic waters to the rhododendron jungles of the Greater Smoky Mountains, we've got a list of top places and top activities in the wild that you won't want to miss.
As Americans, we own a system of protected wildlands envied the world over. But these lands are far from safe — many face daily threats due to human use and development and natural threats like climate change.
Whether your favorite wild place is a cool New England forest or a red rock canyon in the southwest, they have something in common — they need your help.
Protect wilderness today by adopting one of these seven important landscapes:
- Adopt Alaska and the Arctic
- Adopt California
- Adopt the Colorado Plateau
- Adopt the Crown of the Continent
- Adopt the Greater Smoky Mountains
- Adopt the North Cascades
- Adopt the Northern Forest
