Tell the kids to put away the electronics, put on some shoes (you know they are walking around in socks or bare feet), and head outside Saturday for National Get Outdoors Day!

This nationwide effort has hit southwest Louisiana, and Creole Nature Trail Adventure Point in Sulphur is planning a special celebration from 10am until 2pm to help encourage a fun and healthy day of outdoor adventures.

It's free, and it will allow you and your family to immerse yourself in not only the unique ecological setting of southwest Louisiana, but also its culture and music.

Make sure to take plenty of photos! Get outdoors and have a great time.
