Let's G.O.! (Get Outside)

The first annual Let's G.O.! San Joaquin Valley campaign is part of a national effort to make people aware of the local places to get outside and enjoy nature. Sierra Foothill Conservancy and San Joaquin River Parkway and Conservation Trust have combined efforts to raise awareness of the important link between getting outdoors and overall community health.
