  • Celebrate Earth Day


  • The first Earth Day was held on April 22, 1970, the same year that President Richard Nixon signed the legislation that created the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Its founder, Senator Gaylord Nelson, envisioned it as a grassroots celebration that would raise awareness of environmental issues. In celebration of the 35th anniversary of this historic event, Illinois Waste Management and Research Center Library would like you to visit the following sites to learn more about it and get ideas for making Earth Day every day.
