"Rising concern about the environmental crisis is sweeping the nation's campuses with an intensity that may be on its way to eclipsing student discontent over the war in Vietnam...a national day of observance of environmental problems...is being planned for next spring...when a nationwide environmental 'teach-in'...coordinated from the office of Senator Gaylord Nelson is planned...." Senator Nelson also hired Denis Hayes as the coordinator.
There are lots of ways to celebrate Earth Day. Some very cool earth day activities on the Earth Day Network site. Of course planting a tree is at the top of the list. Think about joining others interested in helping our earth. There are sure to be local events in your area. Check them out at the Earth Day Network site at http://ww2.earthday.net/node/80
Happy Earth Day to you and your family!
