Even though the weather wasn't exactly what they planned, folks came out to Elkin's City Park Sunday afternoon to have a picnic for the planet.
This is the 2nd annual picnic hosted by The Nature Conservancy in Randolph County, but not the only one that took place. There were picnics all across the globe, in all 50 states and in 30 different countries.
"Those of us that live in West Virginia are really lucky because sometimes we take it for granted. Our beautiful country side, our mountains, and our rivers. Not everybody has that. We need to take time to sit back as West Virginians and be thankful for what we have," says Rodney Bartgis, Nature Conservancy Director.
"By protecting the environment we are potentially protecting our sources of our food and fresh drinking water. So, today we are just saying thanks to the earth and taking it out to lunch," Andrea Brandon, Nature Conservancy Coordinator.
If you want to volunteer and help out, The Nature Conservancy hosts events year round to help the earth. So click here to visit their website for more information.
