April 22nd is Earth Day! Earth Day is a day to celebrate the Earth’s environment and help raise awareness of threats to our planet’s health.

Senator Gaylord Nelson founded Earth Day in 1970 in the United States and received the Presidential Medal of Freedom Award for doing so. On the first Earth Day, 20 million Americans participated in peaceful demonstrations to show their support for environmental reforms. Two-thousand colleges and universities also participated that day, as did 10,000 primary and secondary schools. Some popular activities that people partake in on Earth Day include planting trees, collecting garbage, cleaning up coral reefs, signing petitions and planning for a better planet.

Celebrate Earth Day by attending Green Campus Project’s 4th Annual Earth Day Carnival that will take place Friday, April 21st from 11AM-2PM on the West Lawn. During that time there will be music, snacks, games, and opportunities to win prizes!
