Want to #optOutside? Durham's Got You Covered

REI has started a movement to the outdoors and has done it in a big way with it's new Black Friday campaign #optOutside. Intended to get people outside into nature instead of inside to stores, the campaign has become a national movement that we here at DPR can fully get behind.  We hope you'll choose to get outside this Friday and visit one of the local awesome natural resources that graces Durham. Hike lovely trails by the Eno River at  Eno River State Park, visit the historical West Point on the Eno Park where you can see an old grist mill in action or walk through the photography museum.  Another great option is to take a pair of binoculars to Sandy Creek Park to spot birds and (if we get a warm spell, the turtles will be out, too!).

If you really want to get crazy with holiday buying, how about giving the gift of DPR Outdoor Recreation experiences?  Find out how here in our fun video about upcoming adventure and environmental education programs. No matter what you choose, we hope that you #optOutside this Thanksgiving!
