Earth Day Celebrates 45 Years
The first Earth Day was celebrated on April 22, 1970. It was the culmination of a proposal by Wisconsin Senator Gaylord Nelson who envisioned a national "teach-in" day as a grassroots movement.
He employed a team of experienced student activists to help him organize the April 22 national event.
It was an effort to send a message to Washington D.C. that the American people were solidly behind a bold political agenda on environmental issues.
Later that year, President Nixon signed legislation to create the Environmental Protection Agency.
