Earth Day

Did you know today is EARTH DAY?! & not only is it earth day, it happens to be 54 years since Senator Gaylord Nelson declared April 22nd as 'Earth Day' in an effort to protect our environment. This act eventually led congress to establish the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

2024 could be the year that we stop taking earth for granted and YOU can help! Even though our earth day celebrations may look a little different this year, there are still ways that you can give back. Once the snow melts and our ground begins to open up plant some trees, clean up garbage in your local parks or playgrounds, or try to reduce the amount of energy we waste by conserving water by turning off the tap when you are brushing your teeth. Every little bit helps! Check out the EPA's website to learn a little more about the origins of Earth Day and to find ways you can contribute!
