What is Earth Day? A holiday created to inspire awareness and appreciation for our natural environment in those who might not consider such matters during the rest of the year.

If you’re looking for fun ways to observe Earth Day anywhere on Earth, the tastefully-named Geof Rochester at The Nature Conservancy has you covered.
