Senator Gaylord Wilson founded the first Earth Day to focus the attention of Congress to the environmental dangers threatening the nation. On April 22, 1970 over 20 million Americans took to the streets, parks, and auditoriums to demonstrate for a healthy, sustainable environment in massive coast-to-coast rallies. By the end of that year, the first Earth Day had led to the creation of the United States Environmental Protection Agency and the passage of the Clean Air, Clean Water and Endangered Species Acts.
Twenty years later Earth Day went global, mobilizing 200 million people in 141 countries and lifting environmental issues onto the world stage. In 1995, President Bill Clinton awarded Senator Nelson the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest honor given to civilians in the United States.
Earth Day at Robin Hill provides an opportunity to learn what we can do to keep our environment, and ourselves, healthy. Mrs. Beryl “Randy” Johnson, a long-time Moon Township resident and educator, envisioned the first Earth Day at Robin Hill as an annual community celebration of biodiversity and environments.
This year’s theme is “Branch Out … Grow Roots.” Students from Moon Area and Rhema Christian schools participate in the t-shirt design contest, with the winners announced at the event. The Moon Township Green Team and Environmental Advisory Council invite you to participate in a family-friendly environmental event featuring fun for everyone!
