We Pacific Northwesterners love our sun. After a long wet winter, summer calls to us with all the beauty our great outdoors has to offer. since many of us are spending more time outside due to social distancing,
August is Summer Sun Safety Month and, it's a great time for a reminder on how to enjoy the sun and outdoors safely. The longer, sunny days of summer present the possibilities of beautiful, fun-filled days. Being outdoors is proven to improve our overall physical and mental health and we've known for years that we need sunlight to produce the vitamin D our bodies require.
