Virtual Earth Day

EarthDayHeaderII

This year, April 22, marks the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day and the 20th Anniversary of the Davidson Lands Conservancy.  The first Earth Day, which took place on April 22, 1970, brought 20 million Americans into the streets. This year we will celebrate at home. Here is a collection of inspiring activities and resources from our community partners that will help you to celebrate Earth Day today and every day. Set your goals and try something new!
