Yep, spend the morning stand-up paddleboarding, your night learning about backpacking, take your kids out for a ride, or just hang out and talk about bikes. You have literally 100 events to choose from, and most are free. Worth noting, on July 16th and 17th everything is free.

WABA is honored to share the ballot and the beneficiary dollars with the C&O Canal Trust, Potomac Appalachian Trail Club, The Anacostia Watershed Society, and The Outdoor Foundation. It’s up to you where the dollars go.

REI’s investing in work on the ground, and we’re grateful to partner with them to build opportunities in the outdoors into our everyday routines. Like their CEO says, “The more we study the relationship between health and the outdoors, the more we’re convinced that this country needs to stop looking at time outside as optional.”
