American Wanderer, Children & Nature Network and The Norfield Grange will host a “Picnic for the Planet” on Earth Day 2012 at The Nature Conservancy’s Katharine Ordway Preserve. Join us and help set a world record for the largest global picnic in a 24-hour period!
The Earth is an amazing planet, so let’s take it out to lunch! Pack a picnic and take part in outdoor fun, such as hiking or just enjoying the fresh air.
Launched by The Nature Conservancy in 2011, Picnic for the Planet nurtures our connection to our planet and helps us remember that a healthy Earth supplies us with food and clean drinking water we need. The inaugural Picnic for the Planet brought together thousands of people, who joined more than 600 picnics in 61 countries.
Please note, restroom facilities are not available at Katharine Ordway Preserve.
American Wanderer connects kids with the National Parks and their surroundings, opening their eyes to the wonders all around.
