Earth Day was first introduced in 1970. The same year, President Richard Nixon established the Environmental Protection Agency or "EPA" with a mission to protect the environment and public health. Earth Day is a time to celebrate gains we have made and create new visions to accelerate environmental progress. Earth Day is a time to unite around new actions. Earth Day and every day is a time to act to protect our planet.
Earth Day is held every year on April 22. For earth day celebration activities in Utah, see the RCU Event Calendar.
