June is National Great Outdoors Month

Featuring #EscapetheIndoors, the Great Outdoors Month website will motivate you to take advantage of the warmer months in our region. Whether you enjoy camping, boating, fishing, hiking or biking, this site will inspire you to get outdoors!
Want to find a camping or fishing site near you? Visit the RocHealthData map room to zoom in on the image below. Click on a triangle shaped icon to see details about the campground. Helpful tip: You can see all the campground names at once by selecting “label” within the map layer. Fishing sites are color-coded by variety of fish (there are over 85 combinations of varieties!).
While in the map room, try adding additional data layers of interest, such as the percent of the population that has access to a park within a ½ mile of their home. What is your favorite way to enjoy the great outdoors? Let us know in the comments below and we will see if we can map your interest too!

    Susanne – thank you for your comment! When you click on the map above, you will see we have added a map layer that shows kayak launch sites in the Finger Lakes. This data was found at https://www.gofingerlakes.org/ which also has recommendations for hiking trails that are good for walking dogs, mountain biking, bird watching, and more!

    Running or walking with my dog in Honeoye Falls, Mendon Ponds Park or on Ganondagan trails – or kayaking on one of the smaller, less-appreciated Finger Lakes (I <3 Hemlock).
