Looking Back on Earth Day

The first Earth Day took place 37 years ago this month and established on a global awareness of our fragile environment. Since that time, landmark laws have been passed to protect wildlife, air, water and lands. This year, there’s a resurgence in environmental concern not seen, perhaps, since that first Earth Day.

Words to Inspire

"If we learn, finally, that what we need to 'manage' is not the land so much as ourselves in the land, we will have turned the history of American land-use on its head."
--Sen. Gaylord Nelson, founder, Earth Day
