52nd Anniversary of Earth Day
Global & Local Celebrations
Earth Day 101
On April 22, 1970, 20 million Americans took to the streets to demonstrate for their right to a healthy world. Earth Day 1970 received bipartisan support as everyone spoke out against oil spills, polluting factories, raw sewage, toxic dumps, pesticides, loss of wilderness, and the extinction of wildlife. By the end of that year, the first Earth Day had led to the creation of the Environmental Protection Agency and the Clean Air, Clean Water, and Endangered Species Acts.
April 2022 marks the 52nd anniversary of the historic Earth Day demonstration. With a new look to ensure our communities safety, but the same great fun, organizations, schools, government, businesses, and more are coming together to celebrate this exciting event. A full week of learning & action for our people and our planet - this is our Earth Day celebration.
Details about these events can be found on this page and on our Facebook and Instagram.
