Earth Day - Free Songs and Poems from Songs 4 Teachers

Earth Day began on April 22, 1970 and was instigated by U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson.  
Actually, the idea for Earth Day evolved over a period of seven years starting in 1962. 
Six years would pass before the idea that became Earth Day actually occurred to 
Senator Nelson while on a conservation speaking tour in the summer of 1969. 


At the time, anti-Vietnam War demonstrations, called "teach-ins," had spread to college campuses all across the 
United States. Suddenly, the idea occurred to Senator Nelson - why not organize a huge grassroots protest over 
what was happening to our environment?
That was the beginning of the Earth Day movement.

After the official celebration of the first official Earth Day, Senator Gaylord Nelson said: 
"That was the remarkable thing about Earth Day. It organized itself."
