Outdoors – Always a healthy activity!

Wayne County is filled with outdoor resources. We encourage you to get some fresh air and be comforted by nature during this challenging time. Pick a spot close to you!

Enjoy the joys of nature. We encourage you to explore a new, perhaps less visited, park or trail. Take a walk, get some fresh air and continue to enjoy and be comforted by nature during this challenging time. Spending time outdoors is vital to our physical and mental health, now more than ever.
