April 22, 1970 ~ The very first Earth Day is observed.

Earth Day was created by Gaylord Nelson who was an Wisconsin, U.S. senator. After all the oil spill in Santa Barbara, California he then took a trip there and was disgusted by what he saw. He then made Earth Day to be acknowledged by every school in the United States. Earth Day still goes on till this day and will for a very long time.
