Earth Day

Celebrate Earth Day on April 22!

The first Earth Day was on April 22, 1970. On that day, 20 million Americans — at the time, 10% of the total population of the United States — took to the streets, parks and auditoriums to demonstrate for a healthy, sustainable environment in massive coast-to-coast rallies. By the end of 1970, the first Earth Day led to the creation of the United States Environmental Protection Agency and the passage of the U.S. Clean Air, Clean Water and Endangered Species Acts. Twenty years later, in 1990, Earth Day went global, mobilizing 200 million people in 141 countries and lifting environmental issues onto the world stage.

Earth Day 2021

Each year on Earth Day, the City usually holds a large community event. We pull invasive plants, plant native species and have some fun together. In light of the current health orders, this year’s activities will be smaller, but equally as meaningful.

Earth Day Stewardship Week

We invite school groups, community groups and individuals to participate in our Earth Day Stewardship Activities happening April 19-24. We’ll be removing invasive plants in Moodyville Park throughout the week with different volunteer groups. Please note: we have reached capacity for volunteers, but we invited you to participate at home. 

Earth Day at Home Challenge

If you are not able to join us in person, we invite you to celebrate by participating in the City's Earth Day at Home Challenge! There are lots of great things you can do at home to help the environment!
