Weston Earth Day 2012
SET A WORLD RECORD
Join the Party April 22 from 11 – 2
The Nature Conservancy in conjunction with American Wanderer, C&NN and The Norfield Grange host Earth Day 2012 Sunday April 22 at the Katherine Ordway Preserve, 165 Good Hill Rd. Weston, CT. Join us and set a World Record for the largest multi-venue picnic in a 24-hour period! The Earth is an amazing planet, so let's take it out for lunch! Pack a picnic and join us for some outdoor fun, hike the trails, play badminton, frisbee or just enjoy the fresh air.
Picnic for the Planet is connecting people around the world through the food they love. American Wanderer connects kids with the National Parks and their surroundings, opening their eyes to the wonders all around. Let’s G.O.! is a youth-inspired, youth-led Children & Nature Network initiative that encourages intergenerational groups of people to get outside together to be active, have fun, and connect with nature. This year, we’ll take another giant step toward creating healthy communities! Participate and spread the word! The Norfield Grange, American Values, Hometown Roots, supports local agriculture, business, community service and family values since 1896.
The Nature Conservancy launched Picnic for the Planet in 2011 to nurture people's connection to the planet and the food it provides. Last year’s Picnic was a great success with thousands of people joining more than 600 picnics in 61 countries on all seven continents.

American Wanderer Summer Camp will be holding an open house to discuss a travel summer camp that explores U.S. National Parks on Saturday, Feb. 4, at 3 p.m. at the Norfield Grange, 12 Goodhill Road. The open house will be hosted by a camp family, Kay and Harry Spencer.
Learn more about the camp and meet the owners who are from Weston, as well as the staff, campers, their families, and camp alumni.
American Wanderer is a summer camp for boys and girls ages 11-17 that explores some of the most magnificent places in the world, right here in America. No two days at camp are the same — every day is a new adventure.
View the sunrise or sunset over the Grand Canyon, Mount Rushmore, Yellowstone Lake or the Canyons of Utah. Watch wild buffalo, pronghorn antelope, elk or bear in their natural habitat. Nowhere else in the world are the concentrations of natural wonders greater than in the routes he camp has planned this summer.
