Earth Day

April 22, 2021 marks the 51st anniversary of Earth Day and the 21st anniversary of the Davidson Lands Conservancy.  The first Earth Day, which took place on April 22, 1970,  increased the public's awareness of the world’s environmental problems. Millions of Americans, including students from thousands of colleges and universities, participated in rallies, marches and educational programs across the country.
