Earth Day

2020 marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day! Celebrated every year on April 22nd, Earth Day is considered a day of action in keeping the environment clean.

First started on April 22, 1970 by founder Gaylord Nelson, Earth Day was started in the hopes to raise a global awareness on the importance of preserving our planet and all of its natural resources. Today, Earth Day includes events and observation from more than 193 countries across the globe.

Each year we are encouraged to come together and help make a difference in our environment. With Social Distancing in place this Earth Day, there are still plenty of activities you and your family are able to do to help celebrate this year.

While celebrated once a year, EVERY DAY can be Earth Day if you take the proper steps to help create a cleaner, healthier planet for everyone to enjoy!
