The Enjoy the Great Outdoors Forever® stamps show both restful and active activities.
With the release of the new Enjoy the Great Outdoors Forever® stamps, the U.S. Postal Service celebrates the many ways we appreciate the natural world.
The stamp art depicts five different scenes of various outdoor activities—building a sandcastle, hiking, cross-country skiing, canoeing, and biking. In the hand-sketched and painted designs, light and shadow are used to evoke a sense of wonder for these remarkable landscapes.
The United States has an abundance of natural resources. National and state parks, nature preserves, placid lakes, sandy beaches, and much more offer endless opportunities for outdoor activities. Whether you prefer an adrenaline-fueled bike ride, a picturesque hike, or a scenic paddle, there is something for everyone outside.
Nature is vast and remarkable. There is no better way to appreciate it than by breathing in the fresh air and exploring the sights, sounds, and smells in person. By experiencing our world, we come to better understand both our role in it and how we can each take care of our shared lands. Take a hike, ski a slope, build a sandcastle, and enjoy all that the great outdoors has to offer.
