Picnic for the Planet 2012-Splash 490x250

The Earth is an amazing planet, and we’re taking it out for lunch! The Nature Conservancy is celebrating Earth Day by hosting the second annual Picnic for the Planet and connecting people around the world through the food they love.

In Seattle, The Nature Conservancy is hosting a Picnic for the Planet from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, April 22 at Seattle Center. The Earth Day celebration is part of the Next 50 Earth Day Environmental Fair and kickoff for Sustainable Futures month, the first of six monthly focuses recognizing the 50th anniversary of the 1962 Seattle World’s Fair.

The Nature Conservancy will host music by The Local Strangers, a “soulful Americana” band, and Kore Ionz, a Seattle-based reggae band.

Bring your own picnic, or plan to buy one from great local food trucks. 

The Nature Conservancy is a leading conservation organization working around the world to conserve the lands and waters on which all life depends. The Conservancy and its more than 1 million members have protected nearly 120 million acres worldwide. Visit The Nature Conservancy on the Web at
