On and around Earth Day 2011, people all around the world will be stepping outside and heading to their favorite outdoor spot to enjoy good food in the company of great people.
ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, FL | March 31, 2011
Earth is an amazing planet — we should take it out for lunch!
The Nature Conservancy is inviting Floridians to join the Picnic for the Planet on and around Earth Day, Friday, April 22, 2011.
Just go to http://earthday.nature.org/ to join the global celebration of the planet we share, the people with whom we share it and the food it provides.
Floridians can join one of the numerous picnics already planned from Jacksonville to the Panhandle and the Keys or start their own. It’s as simple as choosing a location and committing to show up.
Picnic for the Planet is also an opportunity for people around the world to get creative: Who will have the highest altitude picnic in the world, the picnic with the most penguins, the most southerly picnic in the United States—attention Key West!—and more?
The Conservancy wants to know how this planetary picnic goes and hopes people will share tweets, photos, videos and stories with the world. To do so, just use the tag #picnic11 on Twitter, Facebook, Flickr or YouTube. Highlights from around the world will be featured on www.nature.org.
