THE 51ST ANNIVERSARY OF EARTH DAY
The Earth is our home, So blue and so green, So let's do our part, to keep the Earth clean
Earth Day 2021 will mark the 51st anniversary of this holiday. Typically, Earth Day is assigned a different theme or area of focus each year; this year’s theme is “Restore Our Earth.”
Most years, Earth Day events range from river cleanups to removals of invasive plants. With social distancing still set up for several folks this April, Earth Day has gone digital. Virtual events, such as environmental lectures and films, will take place on Earth Day (Thursday, April 22). To see a catalog of official events, visit earthday.org.

WHAT IS EARTH DAY?
Ever wonder how Earth Day began? The first Earth Day was persisted on April 22, 1970, when San Francisco activist John McConnell and Wisconsin Senator Gaylord Nelson separately asked Americans to unite during a grassroots demonstration. Dealing with dangerously serious issues concerning toxic drinking water, air pollution, and the effects of pesticides, an impressive 20 million Americans—10% of the population—ventured outdoors and protested together.
President Richard Nixon led the state in creating the Environmental Protection Agency, which followed with successful laws including the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, and therefore the species Act.
McConnell originally had chosen the spring equinox (March 20, 1970), but Nelson chose April 22, which ended up becoming the official celebration date. (Given that the date of the vernal equinox changes over time, it’s going to have made things more complicated to travel with the astronomical event instead of just a calendar date.)
Today, not only is Earth Day each day meant to extend awareness of environmental problems, but it’s also becoming a well-liked time for several communities to collect together to clean up litter, plant trees, or just reflect on the sweetness of nature. Further down the page, we’ve provided an inventory of activities and projects that you simply can do to enhance your local environment!
WHEN IS EARTH DAY?
Earth Day is always celebrated on April 22. It’s followed closely by Arbor Day, which falls on the last Friday in April.
