Parks & Recreation’s Nick Offerman to serve as Official Celebrity Spokesman
Camp for a cause and help wildlife stay wild. National Wildlife Federation’s widely popular nationwide event, the Great American Campout is celebrating its 11th year of connecting people with the great outdoors so that they will form a deeper desire to protect wildlife and wild places. Nick Offerman, star of NBC’s Parks & Recreation series serves as Official Celebrity Spokesman in promotional online and print ads for the cause which kicks off on Saturday, June 27, 2015, and runs through September 7, 2015, (Labor Day). "Of course it’s great," said Offerman. "It’s camping, and it’s American."
To participate, National Wildlife Federation asks people of all ages to make an online pledge to camp anywhere - from a forest to their own backyards – at least once this summer and provides all the information needed, including a directory of hosted Great American Campout locations, tips on what to bring, lists of campout activities and recipes, and more. Campers are encouraged to take #Campies (Camping Selfies) and submit them to NWF’s Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages to share their experiences and create an extended community of participants year round. For more information, and to register, please go to: www.nwf.org/campout.
NWF has worked to connect people with nature for decades, inspiring people through is award-winning Ranger Rick and National Wildlife magazines, through numerous outdoor events, and by working with educators to get kids greening their schools and learning outdoors.
