Monterey offers a wealth of outdoor activities!  Get out there with family and friends and have fun; but remember to use Risk Management and your better judgement.  


Each year approximately 1,152 Navy military personnel engaged in recreation, athletics and home activities are accidentally injured or killed. These mishaps have cost the Navy approximately 23,441 workdays.


ALL NPS Personnel (Staff, Faculty, and Students) must review the training material below.
