Campout! Carolina: Oct 8-9
|October 3, 2011||Posted by Kelico under Take Action!||
EarthShare North Carolina (ESNC), a non-profit network of regional environmental organizations including Clean Air Carolina, is calling on North Carolina residents to join in the state’s largest campout. On October 8-9, ESNC will hold its fourth annual statewide campout, Campout! Carolina. Residents are encouraged to reconnect with their natural surroundings by camping out in their back yard or favorite campsite, turning off the lights, unplugging nonessential appliances and enjoying our state’s great outdoors.
Last year, more than 5,500 North Carolinians gathered with friends, family and neighbors to celebrate and show their support for the environment, setting a Campout! Carolina record. This year, ESNC hopes to exceed that number, and invites all North Carolinians to pitch a tent and register to Be Counted as official campers at www.campoutcarolina.org.
