The observance of Earth Day began

in 1970 to increase awareness of

problems with the environment.

April 22nd has been set aside for

Americans to be reminded to take care of the planet. Although it is

celebrated only one day a year, it is important to remember that every

day is Earth Day. Every year classrooms take on projects that make a

difference in the health of our planet. Here’s an example of how one middle

school is doing their part to preserve our natural resources.
