Earth Day reminds us of the vital role we must play in protecting the world’s wildlife, public lands, air and water for the next generation. For the past forty-five years, April 22 has served as a clarion call to fulfill our shared responsibility of shaping a healthier future. ‘It’s Our Turn to Lead’ is more than the theme of this year’s events, it is a challenge to confront the climate crisis, practice conservation and cultivate the promise of clean energy. By protecting our environment and pursuing cleaner technologies, we can meet the challenges we face.
