Get Ready for the Great American Backyard Campout

NWF's mission is to inspire Americans to protect wildlife for our children's future

The 2014 Great American Backyard Campout will take place on Saturday, June 28!

Great American Backyard Campout® is a part of National Wildlife Federation’s efforts to help inspire Americans to protect wildlife, including a three-year campaign to get 10 million kids to spend regular outdoor time in nature.

This year, we’ve set a goal of getting more than 200,000 people across the country to camp out. AND, just in time for the 10th anniversary of the Great American Backyard Campout, National Wildlife Federation’s Board of Directors and other friends have offered to donate $2 in support of NWF’s wildlife conservation work for every person that participates in this year’s Campout— up to $400,000!

Pledge to participate in this year’s Great American Backyard Campout and help make an important difference for America’s wildlife!
