Campouts planned around the country
The National Wildlife Federation’s Great American Backyard Campout is planned for tonight.
At last year’s inaugural event, more than 32,000 people nationwide pitched tents in their back yards or in nearby parks and campgrounds. Register at backyardcampout. org.
The event is to help encourage people to go outdoors and experience nature.
In support of the national event, habitat stewards from the Camano Community Wildlife Project will give a nature presentation at 7:30 tonight at the amphitheater at Camano Island State Park, 2269 S. Lowell Point Road. Learn about the habitats and wildlife found on the island and how to attract birds and butterflies to your yard.
