April 22, Earth Day, marks the anniversary of what many consider the birth of the modern environmental movement in 1970. Former U.S. Senator and Earth Day founder, Gaylord Nelson, announced the idea for a "national teach-in on the environment". The first Earth Day in 1970 led to the creation of the United States Environmental Protection Agency and the passage of the Clean Air, Clean Water, and Endangered Species Acts. Today, Earth Day has become a global movement, raising the awareness and consciousness of people in their environment.
The Cape Atlantic Conservation District is a strong supporter and participant of Earth Day. Our message of conservation eduation is demonstrated through our display at both Atlantic County and Cape May County Earth Day celebrations each year. The District aims to focus on providing natural resource solutions for the homeowner in order to bring about a more sustainable planet.
