Earth Day 2020
2020 not only marks a New Year and a new decade, April 22 marks the 50th anniversary of the first Earth Day and just a few days later, on Saturday, April 25, the Earth Day Alliance will host San Luis Obispo County’s 30th Annual Earth Day Fair.
This is a landmark event for the Earth Day Alliance. Founded in 1990, by students and the grassroots community, this annual free public event continues to educate and motivate attendees to take personal action to protect and preserve our natural resources for present and future generations. Age, race and gender do not matter — we are all in this together.
Free events like Earth Day are the front line for creating public awareness and action. The effects of climate change are being recognized around the world. It is essential that every person on the planet immediately become part of the change to reduce their footprint. Because the current administration has dismantled the EPA and continues to roll back policies aimed to curb climate change and limit environmental pollution and protection our work is more important than ever.
Learn how to be part of the change at Earth Day. Admission is free and all ages are welcome. Bring your family, a friend, work associate or neighbor — spread the word. The faster we educate and activate the public the faster we can turn this around.
