1970: The first Earth Day rallied over 20 million Americans from around the country and on
college campuses to get involved in environmental “teach-ins” Conceptualized by Gaylord Nelson and organized by Denis Hayes, Earth Day events featured the largest grassroots mobilization in US history. Out of these events emerged what has come to be known as the environmental movement
and the first environmental legislation – the Clean Air and Clean Water Acts. Due in large part to the
efforts of hundreds of local organizers, Earth Day is now an anticipated annual event in April.
