This year, June 26th is the Great American Backyard Campout! (But ANY night is a great night to camp out! ) The National Wildlife Federation’s Great American Campout is a summer-long celebration of camping as a way to connect with nature and wildlife. It’s a fact: nature makes you nicer – So how do you “participate?” Easy.
Take the pledge to camp – in your backyard, your neighborhood, your local parks, state parks, and national parks, cabins, RVs, treehouses… you name it! Everyone should get outside at least once this summer and connect with nature and wildlife.
And by the way? National Wildlife Federation’s Great American Campout is also part of Great Outdoors Month® in June, a month designated to highlight the many kinds of outdoor activities that strengthen our bonds with nature.
