Earth Day 50 EPA@50

and Covid-19

This year marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day on April 22 and the 50th anniversary of EPA's creation on December 2.  Our plans to celebrate these events are being re-evaluated in light the  Covid-19 pandemic. The plan to conduct Teach-ins in the Spring has, of course, been cancelled. We are hopeful that we can conduct the events  planned for December, but realize that we need to remain flexible.  Our newsletter will update decisions as we are able to make them.
 
We have been able to complete updates to the 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 40+ volunteer authors who have collaborated on telling this important story.  Click here to see the updated Half Century of Progress materials.
