EPA 50th Anniversary

This year marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day on April 22 and the 50th anniversary of EPA's creation on December 2.  
To mark these important milestones, we have extensively revised and updated our Half Century of Progress reports, first begun in 2016. "HCP" tells the story of conditions which led to EPA being established, the progress which has been made in controlling and preventing pollution, and the need to address remaining environmental challenges. We appreciate the creative and hard work which brought that progress about and are grateful to the 30+ volunteer authors who have collaborated on telling this important story.  Click here to see the updated Half Century of Progress materials. 
Our plans for "teach-ins", based on HCP beginning at Earth Day, were upended by the Covid-19 pandemic. Some schools are receptive to having virtual sessions with our members. We have prepared templates that members can adapt to give presentations virtually to schools near and far.  
Please consider offering to make presentations to schools based on your EPA experience and the HCP reports. We stand ready to assist you.  If you have not previously volunteered and wish to do so please send us an email.  Click here to do so.
