                Proclamation 9757 of May 30, 2018

Great Outdoors Month, 2018

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                During Great Outdoors Month, we celebrate the unmatched 
                magnificence of our Nation's mountains, waters, 
                canyons, and coastlines. Spending time in the great 
                outdoors, especially during summer, is an American 
                tradition. Every American should take the opportunity 
                to enjoy the beauty of our natural wonders, which 
                stretch from coast to coast and beyond.

                As Americans, we are blessed with many stunning lands 
                and waters that surround each of our communities. Our 
                numerous forests, wildlife refuges, and local parks 
                offer endless opportunities for recreation, adventure, 
                and renewal. Early morning fishing trips and the thrill 
                of summiting mountain peaks with friends create lasting 
                memories. The splendid beauty of a sunset can inspire, 
                while the solitude of a weekend camping trip often 
                brings long-sought tranquility.

                My Administration has made access to public land a top 
                priority. We have modified national monuments to 
                enhance public use and enjoyment of nearly two million 
                acres of public land in Utah, and opened or expanded 
                hunting and fishing access at 10 national wildlife 
                refuges across the country. The splendor of our 
                country's treasured lands is a source of national 
                pride, and Americans should be able to enjoy as many of 
                our treasured outdoor spaces as possible, in as many 
                ways as possible.

                As summer approaches, I encourage all Americans to step 
                outside and appreciate America's natural beauty and to 
                practice good stewardship of our environment. By 
                enjoying our great outdoors, we enhance our collective 
                efforts to preserve our natural lands and waters, 
                protecting them for future generations.

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the 
                United States of America, by virtue of the authority 
                vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the 
                United States, do hereby proclaim June 2018 as Great 
                Outdoors Month. I urge all Americans to explore the 
                great outdoors while acting as stewards of our lands 
                and waters.

                United States of America the two hundred and forty-
