Nature Conservancy Hosting Earth Day Picnic to Benefit Conservation in Alabama

Posted: Updated:
BIRMINGHAM, AL -

"The Nature Conservancy will host its second annual Earth Day Celebration on Sunday, April 21 from 12-3 p.m. with Picnic for Earth at Railroad Park," according to a news release.

Community members can enjoy environmental-themed activities, live music, a fun-filled kids' area and picnicking.

The event is free and open.

"As a fundraising component, the Conservancy is bringing back an exciting feature of the picnic: sponsored outdoor works of art. Last year's event showcased picnic tables decorated by local artists, businesses and not-for-profit groups. This year's "canvas" will be a made-in-America original, the Adirondack chair. Each sponsored chair will be decorated by a local business or individual and picnickers will have the opportunity to bid on the donated chairs at the park on Earth Day."

The excitement around this event is mounting, organizers added. "Last year's Earth Day picnic was a huge success for the Conservancy and Birmingham with more than 2,000 people joining us for lunch in the park," stated this year's picnic Chairperson Caroline Yeilding. "Picnic for Earth 2013 promises to be an even bigger event with new interactive actives for children of all ages, a silent auction of t he chairs and a great lineup of live music. We are encouraging everyone to get outside for Earth Day and picnic with us in Railroad Park."
