Great America Backyard Campout tonight 

Have you ever camped out in your own backyard? Have you ever thought about it? Well, The National Wildlife Federation wants you to try it. Launched last year, the backyard campout night is designed for families to rediscover the joys of nature and the environment.

According to NWF, 32,000 families participated last year. To join in the fun, go to NWF's site and register your campsite. When you do, your pup tent will show up on their US map and you'll also get lots of helpful hints about photography tips, a nocturnal wildlife guide, what to pack and recipes for your campfire.

So many people close themselves up in their homes and generally don't get to watch the birds go home at dusk, or hear the sounds of crickets chirping or frogs singing. It's an inexpensive way to enjoy your family and get reacquainted with Mother Nature. Why not give it a try? We plan to participate and I'll share our experience with you next time. Happy Gardening.
