Today Marks 40th Anniversary of Earth Day!

Earth Day founder, U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin, first proposed national
environmental teach-in day to a conservation group in Seattle in September of 1969. Denis Hayes was the principal organizer of the first Earth Day, which took place a few months later in 1970. Over 20 million people participated that first year.
