2020 Goal: Increase participation in recreational and educational activities, events and venues that get people outdoors into nature by 25%.

What is the Outdoor Action Team?

We are a diverse group of professional and volunteer outdoor recreation, conservation and education leaders. Team members include representatives from parks departments, nature conservancies, non profits and businesses engaged in coordinating public outdoor programs and activities. We work together to encourage people to enjoy the many wonderful outdoor places in our region and develop a connection with nature and environmental sustainability.

The Outdoor Action Team plays a lead role in developing and promoting Green Umbrella's Great Outdoor Weekend, an annual outdoor events sampler that takes place during the last weekend of September with over 100 free events spanning 10 counties!

The Ohio River Paddlefest is the nation's largest paddling celebration with over 2,200 participants traveling 9 miles along the Cincinnati / Northern Kentucky waterfront. The event will take place on August 3, 2019 and registration for participants and exhibitors is now open.


The 21st Flying Pig Marathon will be held on May 5, 2019, with events all weekend! Whether you're a runner or walker, whether you want to volunteer or cheer, whether you want to participate for charity, or just for your own satisfaction, you can sign up and be part of the Pig Party.

go Vibrant has created the largest network of urban walking routes in the country, all in Cincinnati neighborhoods! They also curate digital content and unique experiences to keep you informed, inspired and energized.


Tri-State Trails
is an initiative of Green Umbrella that serves as the region's alliance of trail advocates, collaborating across sectors to connect and expand our region's trail network.
