Children's Museum of Houston pays a colorful tribute to Mother Nature during Earth Day Celebration, April 17 – 23
Special Earth Day Salute on April 19
Twenty million people took part in the first Earth Day celebration in 1970. Wisconsin Senator Gaylord Nelson wanted a nationwide protest to get people to think about cleaning up the environment, and he got it. As a result, The EPA was formed and the Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act and Endangered Species Act were passed. This goes to show it takes only one person who believes in a cause to create an entire movement with lasting impact!
