Article Excerpt:

To experience nature in its best form, hear the sound of crickets, and gaze at the stars, you don’t have to travel very far. In fact, your own backyard will do just fine.

The Great American Backyard Campout, sponsored by the National Wildlife Federation, is a national event encouraging families to spend a night under the stars in their backyard, at local campsites, or in community parks. Now in its sixth year, the event takes place on the fourth Saturday of June. This year’s event is scheduled for June 26.

According to Karoline Hurd, senior manager of events for National Wildlife Federation, the event promotes both an appreciation for nature and family time. “Whether camping in the great outdoors or in their own backyard,” she says, “the Great American Backyard Campout is the perfect way for families to make lasting memories and will give them a better understanding of why it’s called the great outdoors.”
