VANCOUVER, WA – National Get Outdoors Day brings community partners together to celebrate healthy, active, outdoor fun at Fort Vancouver National Historic Site on June 14, 2014. The National Park Service's annual Brigade Encampment, a component of National Get Outdoors Day, re-enacts the jovial return of the fur brigades to Fort Vancouver – illuminating how day-to-day survival skills of trappers in the 1840s have become recreational pursuits today, and how our relationships to the natural world have changed over time.
