Join The Nature Conservancy and Arizona Science Center for Picnic for the Planet
And Attempt to Break a Guinness World Record
Earth Day is coming up, and Arizona Science Center has joined The Nature Conservancy to host Picnic for the Planet and connect people around the world through the food they love
Arizona residents are encouraged to bring a blanket and enjoy lunch in Heritage Square for this family-friendly event that includes Arizona Science Center discounts, sidewalk chalking, games and more! Set to potentially be the largest worldwide picnic ever, the Phoenix gathering is just one of more than 38 Picnic for the Planet events in cities around the world, including Atlanta; Boston; Chicago; Dallas; Seattle; Salt Lake City; Washington, D.C.; Tanzania; Beijing; and Melbourne, Australia.
The picnic may even make its way into the Guinness World Record® book, as The Nature Conservancy plans to set the record for the largest multi-venue picnic in a 24-hour period.
