What is Earth Day?
Gaylord Nelson is the founder of Earth Day. One day he thought we need to do something to protect the Earth. Now Earth Day is an international holiday. Gaylord Nelson then went to Washington D.C. and talked to John F. Kennedy about making it official. John F. Kennedy went out to an 11state talk about Earth Day, and Nelson went to 25 states to talk about Earth Day. Thanks to Gaylord Nelson we now have Earth Day and we continue to take care of the Earth.
