Natural beauty surrounds the Las Vegas Valley, and municipal parks and urban trails can be found in town.

Reminding residents of those assets is a goal of Get Outdoors Nevada Day, a celebration of the state’s natural beauty and the many ways to enjoy it.

“There’s nothing that’s too far away from any one of our communities, but a lot of people simply aren’t aware” of what’s nearby, said Mauricia Baca, executive director of the Outside Las Vegas Foundation, which is putting on the event.

The fourth annual Get Outdoors Nevada Day is being held Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at  Cornerstone Park in Henderson.
