Ryan Dorsey and his son Josey Hollis

Ryan Dorsey is spending some quality time with his son, Josey Hollis, in the great outdoors.

In honor of Earth Day on Thursday, the Justified actor, 37, shared a photo slideshow of himself and his 5-year-old boy visiting the woods on Instagram.

The first snap showed the father-son duo sitting inside the large, hollowed trunk of a fallen tree. In another, the pair are pictured smiling and laughing in front of giant Sasquatch wood carving.

Dorsey also posted several solo shots of Josey hanging out with a variety of animals.

"Happy Earth Day, earthlings!🌏🌲," the dad wrote in the caption. "#dontlitter."

Josey's mother is Naya Rivera, who tragically died in July 2020 during a boating trip in Ventura County, California.

Rivera had taken Josey to Lake Piru and rented a pontoon boat. When the Glee star didn't return the boat on time, staff found it on the north side of the lake with Josey sleeping in his life jacket on board, but no sign of Rivera.

Authorities later said that Rivera likely saved Josey by putting him back on board before she accidentally drowned.

The actress was missing for five days before she was found on July 13, and an autopsy later determined Rivera's cause of death to be an accidental drowning.

In January, Dorsey, who was married to Rivera from 2014 to 2018, expressed his pride their son in a sweet Instagram tribute to Josey.

Sharing a snapshot of the child decked out in Carolina Panthers gear, the Ray Donovan actor wrote, "This little boy...man...I couldn't be any prouder of someone. At such a young age, he's endured more than anyone should at 5 years old."

"Without even fully realizing it, he lives the #keeppounding mantra every day with his resilance [sic]," he continued in his post. "You're so strong, so brave, and so kind. I will always be proud of you and we will always #keeppounding b/c that's all we can do."
