Earth Day Fair is today

Today is the Earth Day Fair at Fermilab. Come to the Wilson Hall atrium between 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m., and learn how you can help take care of our planet.

Each year, the lab celebrates Earth Day with many activities in support of sustainability and environmental awareness. Listed below are the activities and exhibits planned for this year’s celebration.

Earth Day is a worldwide event coordinated by the Earth Day Network and celebrated annually on April 22. The first Earth Day occurred in 1970 throughout thousands of schools and hundreds of communities in the United States. Earth Day 1970 shined a much needed spotlight onto the deterioration of the environment at that time. Shortly following Earth Day 1970, the United States government created the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency which led to the passage of a number of crucial acts in support of environmental protection. Today, Earth Day continues to bring attention to the environmental challenges at hand, pushing for support and change for the better.
