Earth Day History

The first Earth Day on April 22nd, 1970 mobilized 20 million American citizens, from all walks of life to demonstrate in favor of environmental reform. In the Cabrillo College and surrounding sustainability community, this celebration of environmental awareness and protection has grown into an entire week of events. Now observed in over 192 countries, help build into the largest secular holiday in the world and participate in events across Santa Cruz County!
