Celebrate 50th Earth Day with us!

A screening of Generations Yet to Come: Environmental Rights in Pennsylvania, a speakers’ panel, and an evening with like-minded outdoor enthusiasts and conservationists? Sounds like a great evening! Mark your calendar now for an inspiring and fun event! In April of 1970, twenty million Americans participated in the first Earth Day celebration. Fifty years later, that day is recognized as the planet’s largest civic event. Earth Day led to the passage of landmark environmental laws that help to protect our air, water, wildlife, and habitat. Pennsylvania recognized environmental quality as a basic civil right in 1971. Its powerful language was ignored for decades but that’s starting to change.
