Earth Day 50

EPA@50

In 2020 we will mark the 50th anniversary of Earth Day on April 22 and the 50th anniversary of EPA's creation on December 2.  We are partnering with Earth Day Network to develop materials our members can use in Teach-ins about these two landmark events and to describe the work which remains to be done to realize a clean and healthy environment in the US and for the planet. Check back again soon for more information on planned EPA@50 activities and events.
