Participate in the Great American Backyard Campout Saturday

Don’t forget to remind your readers to join families across the country this Saturday, June 28, for the Great American Backyard Campout! Avoid high gas prices and experience the wildlife found in your own backyard.

Research now shows that kids spend an average of 44 hours per week staring at electronic screens, TV, video games and computers -- for the first time in our country’s history; we have an entire generation that is growing up disconnected from nature. Help reverse this trend and spend an evening stargazing, telling stories, and cooking outdoors. The National Wildlife Federation is providing recipes, nocturnal wildlife guides, exploration activities, nature guides, and much more to make your camping experience fun and rewarding.

Head to to register your campsite and learn more about the Great American Backyard Campout.

Take advantage of summer this weekend and trade in your website for a campsite. You never know what you can discover right outside your backdoor!

The National Wildlife Federation inspires Americans to protect wildlife for our children’s future.
