About Earth Day Northwest 2020

The first-ever Earth Day in 1970 sparked landmark legislation to protect our air, our water and endangered species. It also catalyzed the creation of the EPA. In 2020, we had an opportunity to drive efforts to deliver the biggest, highest-impact Earth Day that Puget Sound, the state of Washington, and the Pacific Northwest have ever witnessed. Earth Day Northwest 2020 seized the opportunity of the 50th anniversary, challenging all of us to take collective action and leadership.
