2014 Earth Day Celebration
The 20th annual Earth Day celebration will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m on Friday, April 25, 2014, at the Missouri State Capitol south lawn.
Earth Day activities
The Department of Natural Resources sponsors and hosts the event at the Capitol each year. Activities include information booths, games and displays about the environment. Many other state and federal agencies join the department to bring additional environmental displays and exhibits to the event.
The nation's very first Earth Day was held in 1970 and led to the creation of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
