National Get Outdoors Day says
Join our historic forest ranger for a day of one-of-a-kind outdoor activities. Hikes. Barn tours. And a hands-on exploration of our environment. For all ages.

It's spring — time to get out of the house! Come to Greenfield Village for National Get Outdoors Day. With the help of the U.S. Department of Agriculture and U.S. Forest Service, this annual event encourages healthy, active outdoor fun. We have a full schedule of activities planned: an environmental program in the Village Pavilion, an afternoon nature hike, presentations by our historic forest ranger on horseback. We also open up the usually closed William Ford Horse Barn for tours, as well as offer a wide range of hands-on activities. So come to Greenfield Village and enjoy the out-of-doors.

Your experience includes:
- Environmental Programs
- William Ford Barn Open to the Public
- Hands-on Activities
- Outdoor Demonstration
- Fun Outdoor-themed Giveaways
- Presentation by our Historic Horseback Forest Ranger
- Join an Afternoon Nature Hike
- Nature Hikes

All activities are free for members or included with paid admission to Greenfield Village.
