History

Earth day was first celebrated in 1970, as a result of the hard work and dedication of Sen. Gaylord Nelson. There was legislation on social activism, but none on environmental issues. In 1963 he appealed to the public, designating April 22 as "national emviormental day." Earthday has now been around for 45 years!!!
