Earth Day was founded in 1970. U.S. Senatory Gaylord Nelwo of Wisconsin called for a nationwide demonstration in the spring of 1970 aimed to raise awareness of environmental issues. It worked. The first national Earth Day was April 22, 1970.
WCMC employees have volunteered to help with the NYC Green Festival April 20th-21st. The volunteer team is set, but you can still attend this great New York City event!
