46th Earth Day is Friday, April 22.


Martin Luther said, “Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree.” 

Those celebrating the 46th Annual Earth Day this year feel the same way.

The theme for Earth Day 2016 centers on trees.

Earth Day Columbus is asking volunteers to “Branch Out!” and plant 20,000 trees around the central Ohio area. They will provide the trees, the places to plant, gloves, shovels, and anything else necessary. They just need the manpower to plant the trees–which means they need you.

The City of Columbus also has an initiative of the same name, but they want to plant 300,000 trees by the 2020 Earth Day weekend.

The Earth Day Network is calling on activists to plant 7.8 billion trees across the planet as Earth Day heads toward its 50th Anniversary in 2020.

For ways you can get involved in Earth Day, visit the Earth Day Network web site HERE.
