Earth Day, April 22, 2017 – Happy Earth Day from New Hampshire! Earth Day is an annual day founded by US Senator Gaylord Nelson in 1970. Many consider Earth Day to be the birth of the modern environmental movement. And the purpose of this day is to celebrate and create awareness for the environment.

Earth Day acts as an educational tool and influences all generations to care about the environment. If you have never heard about this day take some time to read up on the history and importance of Earth Day here.

I use photography to create awareness for the environment and to promote responsible land stewardship. It is essential that we understand the impact we have on the environment. And education and proper training can help control the problem.

Celebrate Earth Day by taking time off today to enjoy the environment. Go for a hike, sit in a city or town park, pick up trash along a trail, or just walk around your backyard. Just get out and appreciate what mother nature has created for us. And as you enjoy the solitude of nature, remember we are the only ones who can protect the environment.
