The Nature Conservancy, the leading conservation organization working in all 50 states and more than 30 countries, is attempting to set the record for most people picnicking in 24 hours this Earth Day, Sunday, April 22.
They’re presenting “Picnic for the Planet,” an attempt to earn the distinction of the world’s largest multi-venue picnic in 24 hours.
Locally, Clark Park is participating in clinching the Guinness World Record. From noon-4 p.m., camp out in West Philadelphia’s verdant Clark Park to contribute to the worldwide attempt at pandemic picnicking.
Thee first 100 picnickers will enjoy lunch courtesy of Elevation Burger, but feel free to pack your own blanket, sips and snacks. Need suggestions? Refer to our thorough picnicking in Philadelphia guide.
What better way to enjoy the beautiful weather of late than with a picnic in the park?
