The month of April brings the beauty of the spring season – the days are longer, flowers begin to bloom and we can enjoy nature’s green beauty again after a long, cold winter. It’s no wonder April is widely recognized as Earth Month. Throughout the month there are three particular celebratory days: Arbor Day, World Heritage Day and Earth Day. Here’s how you can celebrate and participate this Earth Month...

Arbor Day
Date: April 10th

This is a day all about trees. The Arbor Day Foundation’s goal is to inspire people to plant, nurture and celebrate tree planting. The very first Arbor Day was in Nebraska on April 10, 1872 and it’s estimated that one million trees were planted that day. In Canada, we celebrate Arbor Day on different dates depending on the province. Click here for unique ideas on how to celebrate and get out there and plant something!

World Heritage Day
Date: April 18th

This day of celebration is also referred to as the “International Day for Monuments and Sites.” Every year has a theme, and this year’s theme is Heritage of Education (schools, universities, libraries, academies). The goal of World Heritage Day is to encourage local communities and individuals to remember how important it is to cherish their cultural heritage, identities and communities, while protecting and conserving them. This includes preserving natural landmarks, which are a crucial part of our earth’s composition.

Earth Day
Date: April 22nd

The first Earth Day was celebrated on April 22, 1970. The Earth Day Network (EDN) grew out of that one day in 1970 and today the organization works with over 22,000 partners in 192 countries to expand awareness of the importance of how we treat our Earth. Over 1 billion people are involved in Earth Day activities every year, which makes it the most widespread civic day of celebration and awareness in the world.
