Earth Day is April 22
April 22 marks the 35th anniversary of Earth Day. The day was originally called the "First Environmental Teach-in" and was founded by former senator Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin.

Ways to celebrate Earth Day include neighborhood clean ups, planting trees or flowers and using alternative transportation.
