Earth Day Turns 50: Celebrate with NASA!
NASA is celebrating the 50th anniversary of Earth Day with loads of great information, videos, and events. Check out NASA's Earth Day webpage for tons of awesome articles and educational resources. NASA has gathered some of their best environmental education resources into a special online Earth Day 2020 Toolkit, free to access and use for all! 

What are your plans for April 22? The first Earth Day was celebrated on that date in 1970, and has since expanded into a global day of appreciation of our planet. Who doesn't love to give thanks to our favorite planet, this pale blue dot we all call home?
