Great American Backyard Campout 2013
Shut off those cell phones and head outside! That's the idea behind the Great American Backyard Campout.
The event encourages people of all ages to camp in their backyards, neighborhoods and parks as a way to reconnect with nature. You can also go for a hike, do some bird watching or check out some bugs.
The Great American Backyard Campout is Saturday, June 22, 2013. It's a movement encouraged by the National Wildlife Federation.
