Welcome To COWLITZ EARTH DAY
“ Our local Earth Day Celebration began over 20 years ago,
April 23, 1995 ”
Cowlitz County Earth Day Celebration has grown into a major local event, bringing in people of all walks of life. Local Earth friendly groups will be presenting everything from gardening tips to honey sticks. Smokey Bear will be there, lots of displays, free prizes, activities, and a mini petting zoo. A great family outing and a chance to appreciate and learn more about the abundant natural resources in our area! Earth Day is observed on April 22nd and was started in the United States in 1970 by Senator Gaylord Nelson to create awareness for the Earth's environment and to encourage conservation efforts. In 1990, Earth Day was taken international, and today, more than 500 million people in 175 countries observe Earth Day.
