American Wanderer, Children and Nature Network and The Norfield Grange will host a “Picnic for the Planet” on Earth Day, Sunday, April 22, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., at The Nature Conservancy’s Katharine Ordway Preserve in Weston. The goal is to set a world record for the largest global picnic in a 24-hour period.
Participants are encouraged to 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 mankind’s connection to the planet. The inaugural Picnic for the Planet brought together thousands of people, who joined more than 600 picnics in 61 countries.
Restroom facilities are not available at Katharine Ordway Preserve.
American Wanderer connects kids with the national parks and their surroundings. Let’s G.O.! is a youth-inspired, youth-led Children and Nature Network initiative that encourages intergenerational groups of people to get outside together. The Norfield Grange supports local agriculture, business, community service and family values.
The Nature Conservancy is the leading conservation organization.
