Earth Day

Montgomery County Government celebrates Earth Day the entire month of April! 

Earth Day, the modern environmental movement, has been celebrated each April 22 since 1970. The founder, Gaylord Nelson, then a U.S. Senator from Wisconsin, began the movement after witnessing the global damages of the 1969 massive oil spill in Santa Barbara, California. Today, millions of Americans participate in the fight for a clean environment. The Washington, DC metropolitan area has a variety of Earth Day activities that make caring for the planet fun for all ages. You can pitch in and help clean up any of the region’s parks or attend a family event that includes learning ways to improve our environment and make a difference. Events take place throughout the month of April.  The global theme for Earth Day 2013 is “The Face of Climate Change".  Read More

There are many environmental volunteer projects throughout the month including cleaning up the Potomac River Watershed, removing invasive plants from our parks (through Parks and Recreational Department) and many other local events and projects. Participate once, or throughout the month!
