Spread out a blanket and join our Picnic Celebration this Earth Day (April 22)

Written by Matt Barrett on . Posted in Act

Looking for something to do for Earth Day? How about a picnic lunch? This Earth Day (April 22), The Nature Conservancy is celebrating with a big picnic party – all over the world.

We’re really excited about how quickly (ahem, organically) the word has spread and can’t wait to see how many people join our celebration.

All you have to do to join in is grab a date (and/or some friends) and pick your favorite near-by outdoor spot (or join a picnic already started near you) and visit the Conservancy’s MeetUp page to share your plans and spread the word!

Check out the 1-minute video above for more info.

Once you’ve seen the video, check out the Conservancy’s Picnic for the Planet site to see the 250+ picnic locations already in the works (in 40 states in the U.S. and 31 countries) and to click through to the Conservancy’s MeetUp page to join one of those picnics or to start a new one!

And, here at Planet Change, we just want to remind you that you can make your picnic climate change-friendly by following these five food-smart actions and carpooling, or – better yet – setting out on a walk to your destination.

Also, we want to hear your plans! Tell us in the comments below what you plan to eat, where you plan to go and how you might make your picnic climate-friendly!

More soon as Earthy Day 2011 approaches.
