On Saturday, families across the country will discover the joys of sleeping out in the great outdoors during National Wildlife Federation's sixth annual Great American Backyard Campout.

American Girl joins NWF as the national sponsor of this year's event, an initiative that shares the same outdoor spirit as Lanie, American Girl's 2010 Girl of the Year.

Following are links to more information on the campout, including Lanie-inspired activities: www.americangirl.com/girloftheyear/2010/backyard.php and online.nwf.org/site/PageNavigator/gabc_2010_home.
