50 Years of Earth Day
First observed 50 years ago, Earth Day gives the global community a day to recognize and honor the planet. Here at Utah State, we plan a whole week to show our love for the Earth! Join us this year as the Aggie community celebrates Earth Day for this week-long event, April 15-22. We have a variety of events this year and look forward to seeing you online!
History of Earth Day
The first Earth Day was celebrated April 22, 1970 after a Wisconsin Senator Gaylord Nelson was inspired to spread awareness about environmental protection after witnessed the impacts of a Californian oil spill in 1969. Now about 200 countries celebrate Earth Day in some form and the resulting Earth Day Network reaches many communities through conservation and education.
