Overview

Earth Day Then and Now 50 years ago, the United States turned a corner in prioritizing conservation and public health following the first Earth Day celebration. In 1970, coast-to-coast demonstrations on April 22 called for environmental protection to be part of the national political agenda, and politicians listened. Later in 1970, the Environmental Protection Agency was established; the Clean Air Act was passed; and later in the 1970's the Clean Water Act, the Endangered Species Act, and other similar bills became law. Join us to learn more about the successes of the last 50 years, to reflect on where environmental causes stand today, and learn about how active conservation can lead us forward in addressing the challenges that our planet faces built on the same spirit and energy of the first Earth Day in 1970. This program will feature Mark Zakutansky, AMC's Director of Conservation Policy Engagement, and Jeff Fritzinger, AMC's Delaware Valley Chapter Leadership Chair. We share the vision... it's been our mission for nearly 150 years!
