Today Is Earth Day!

In 1970, Gaylord Nelson, a Wisconsin senator, established the first Earth Day to bring awareness to air and water pollution. Fifty-one years later, taking care of the Earth is more important than ever. The theme of this year’s Earth Day is Restore Our Earth. Environmental issues are taking place across the world. It’s up to everyone to act responsibly in the challenges that confront us.
