The beginning of this movement…
On April 22, 1970, Senator Gaylord Nelson decided to do something about global pollution of our air, water, and land.
He knew that college students were the best ones to embrace this call to action.
Since then over 20 million Americans have demonstrated and worked towards saving this planet.
The work goes on.
As Master Naturalists we also work towards protecting our natural resources.
So put our planet in your thoughts,
Put it in your hearts,
Then put all that into action.
We have to succeed for every living thing.
By the way, I was in college in 1970, and proudly attended one of the first Earth Day Events, along with 3,000 other students.
