April 22, 2020 marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. Since 1970, Earth Day has increased awareness of the planet we live on, pollution, climate change, endangered species, and many other environmental issues. The NISE Network has many resources, in addition to your toolkit, to help you plan for your Earth Day celebration. Earth Week takes place on the week around Earth Day.
