Shedd Aquarium Goes For World Record With Earth Day Picnic

CHICAGO (CBS) – It’s a little cold to have a picnic, but that’s exactly what people are doing outside the Shedd Aquarium on this Earth Day.

This is the second year for the lakefront tourist attraction to participate in Picnic for the Planet – this time as part of an effort to set a world record for the largest outdoor picnic in a 24-hour period.

Lesley Spraggins, with the Nature Conservancy, says the Shedd is one of roughly 3,000 picnic sites across the globe — including Australia — to work for the record.
