Earth Day at 50

April 22, 2020 marked the fiftieth anniversary of the celebration of Earth Day.  To commemorate this milestone, USA Facts, a not-for-profit, nonpartisan civic initiative published State of the Earth in Numbers, a data-driven portrait of America's energy, climate, and environment.  


To celebrate the fiftieth annual Earth Day, The Greenbelt Conservancy created a Greenbelt YouTube Channel.
