On April 22, 1970, Earth Day organizers specifically sought to engage young people in growing environmental awareness. Now with the 50th anniversary falling during our stay-at-home order, the public won’t let quarantine cancel the party. Nonprofit and government organizations across the nation are using their countless sources of information and technology to make Earth Day 2020 stream-worthy.
