EXHIBIT OPENING

OUR ONE TRUE HOME: THE 50TH ANNIVERSARY OF EARTH DAY

Interpretive Center, Homer Lake Forest Preserve, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

Earth Day has been called the “least understood famous event in modern American history.” It spontaneously emerged on a truly grassroots level in response to “a time when people could see, smell and taste pollution” in their daily lives. On the first Earth Day, April 22, 1970, 20 million people participated in thousands of events throughout the U.S. Locally, leaders in Champaign County emerged – average citizens who passionately worked to make the world a better place. Learn more at this year’s exhibit! Stop by throughout the day to do fun crafts and activities related to Earth Day. FREE. For more info: (217) 896-2455 or pleiter@ccfpd.org.
