Great American Backyard Campout

Ah, the first day of summer! It's a beautiful thing to spend time outside with your kids, and per my role as a founding mother for the National Wildlife Federation, I wanted to point you all to this Saturday's Great American Backyard Campout -- an initiative designed to inspire families to enjoy a night of old-fashioned fun outdoors. The date is set as an inspiration point (to participate more formally, you can register a team of campers, join a team, or donate to the NWF's mission); otherwise, the point simply is to encourage family campouts any time this summer. So go pitch a tent and enjoy!
