Don’t miss it! You can join in here.

Earth Day’s big 50th anniversary may not be what we imagined, but it’s still something to celebrate. We look forward to coming together (digitally!) to advocate for climate action, clean air and water, and protections for wilderness and wildlife. For 50 years, Earth Day has helped create awareness of just how precious our beautiful planet is, and just how important a healthy environment is for all those who live on it.
