2020 marks the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day. In 1970, 20 million Americans mobilized to drive positive action for the future of our planet. And while this year’s activities can’t take place in the traditions of the past 49 years, we’ve assembled a 3-part blog series with ideas to safely celebrate our environment and take action to protect it.
In our search for ideas, we are so impressed with the number of resources available online. From local to national there’s something for everyone.
