A Brief History of Earth Day
In spring 1970, Wisconsin Senator Gaylord Nelson created Earth Day as a way to force this issue onto the national agenda. The first Earth Day on April 22, 1970, activated 20 million Americans from all walks of life and is widely credited with launching the modern environmental movement. The passage of the landmark Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, Endangered Species Act and many other groundbreaking environmental laws soon followed.
CSU Fullerton celebrates Earth Day with annual festivities, student contests, expos and the Sustainability Symposium to show its continued commitment to environmental and social responsibility and awareness.
