Celebrate National Wild Rumpus Day
We will kick-off the Be Out There campaign with a “National Wild Rumpus Day” event at a Washington, D.C. public school, featuring invited local leaders, members of Congress, administration officials, NWF leadership, and Where the Wild Things Are stars Catherine Keener and Max Records, who will participate in “wild” outdoor crafts and games with the children. That evening, NWF will host a red-carpet event, screening and benefit.
Where the Wild Things Are, officially opens October 16, and the first National Wild Rumpus Day will celebrate getting outside and exploring the natural world with our imaginations. Check out www.beoutthere.org to download the activity poster and other great materials and tools to help children find the wild thing within them.
