What resulted was the first Earth Day observed on April 22, 1970. Demonstrations and rallies took place across the country and 20 million Americans raised their voices in support of a healthy and sustainable environment. Establishment of The United States Environmental Protection Agency and passage of the Clean Air, Clean Water, and Endangered Species Acts followed. Since that time, Earth Day has evolved into a global observance. Earth Day Network, a nonprofit organization that coordinates Earth Day activities, estimates that more than a billion people are involved worldwide and considers it to be "the largest secular civic event in the world." Be a part of it!
