“The first Earth Day was in 1970. After damage done by a 1969 massive oil spill in Santa Barbara, California, a national “teach-in” was held that focused on educating the public about the environment.” – LiveScience.com
This Earth Day will also feature marches around the United States to show support for scientists and those who work to save the environment.
