Earth Day is a world wide celebration where volunteers gather together to promote a healthy, sustainable environment. This year we have added excitement as President Obama’s call to service encourages additional volunteers.
Earth Day organizers are hoping an army of volunteers will heed President Barack Obama’s call to service and turn out for the annual celebration next month to make lasting improvements to the nation’s parks, schools and beaches.
Earth Day was first founded in 1970 by Senator Gaylord Nelson and continues to be celebrated worldwide on April 22.
Volunteers are needed and there are many ways in which you can do your part and get involved. We found lots of helpful information at earthdaynetwork:
