Earth Day, April 22, 2020 – Happy Earth Day from the New Hampshire White Mountains! 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. This year marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day.

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. In the 21st-century, it is essential that we understand the impact we have on the environment. Education and proper training can help control the problem.

The coronavirus pandemic has altered the lives of many, and with the stay-at-home orders and social distancing guidelines in place here in New Hampshire, celebrating Earth Day today may be difficult; under normal circumstances, there would be numerous outside events going on today to celebrate Earth Day. But because of the social distancing guidelines that are in place, the Earth Day organization is doing a bunch of events live on their website, Earth Day Live 2020.

During these stay-at-home orders, we can still walk around the block and explore our backyards. So if you do decide to go for a walk today, bring a trash bag with you and pick up some trash. Picking up trash is a simple way to give back to the environment.
