EARTH DAY, APRIL 22

April 16, 2011

Earth Day 2011 is rapidly approaching and Trees For Life wants to invite you to take an active part in this years celebration on April 22. Earth Day was founded by United States Senator Gaylor Nelson as an environmental teach-in first held onApril 22, 1970. The event was inspired by an oil spill off of the Santa Barbara coast and it was Senator Nelson’s intent to inspire an awareness and appreciation for the environment. The event became an international event in 1990 when 141 nations participated. Earth Day is now coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network and each year is celebrated in more than 175 countries.

Trees for Life would like to express our sincerest apprecation to the thousands of volunteers, representating hundreds of schools and organizations, who over the past 30 years have dedicated their time and resources to be our partners in planting millions of trees around the world.
