Earth Day April 22, 2022

Earth Day, celebrated annually on April 22, is a reminder to protect the environment, restore damaged ecosystems and live more sustainably. First celebrated in 1970, this year marks its 52nd anniversary.

The April 22 date was selected partly to maximize the number of students reached on university campuses as this date fell between colleges’ spring break and final exams.
