On Earth Day, The Nature Conservancy is asking people to get outside and join the world’s largest picnic celebration, Picnic for the Planet. Join millions of other families as they celebrate the joys of nature. Check their website to find picnics already planned in many major cities or plan your own. Here are my tips on how to plan a perfect family picnic. Remember to leave no trace in the park. Pick up after yourselves.
