Need help finding an Earth Day activity?

By Rita R, Robison

Earth Day is Sunday, April 22.

Created in 1970, Earth Day is a time to recognize the importance of the earth and its environment and do something to help protect it.

MTR1The website, Earth Day 2012 – Mobilize the Earth, urges consumers, on the 42nd Anniversary of Earth Day, to unite their voices in a call for a sustainable future and undertake an activity to improve the environment.

Its featured event for Earth Day in the United States will be a rally on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. Thousands of people from all parts of the country will be joined by civic leaders and celebrities to bring attention to environmental problems and their solutions. Activities include music, speakers, voter registration, renewable energy demonstrations, informational booths, and interactive exhibits.

Among other Earth Day events you can attend are: an Earth Week Film Fest in Gainesville, Fla.; an invasive plant removal party in Greenland, N.H.; a “Root Down” to plant trees in Columbus, Ohio; a highway cleanup in Clinton, N.J.; an electronic recycling event in Littleton, Colo.; or a food and wine festival in Pasco Robles, Calif.

See the webpage A Billion Acts of Green for how you can find an Earth Day activity in your community and other Earth Day resources.

The Share Your Photos section of Earth Day 2012 – Mobilize the Earth website is fun. The photos of Earth Day projects are randomly arranged on a page. You can click on the “Flip Photo” feature and read on the back of the photo about the Earth Day activity.
