On April 22, 1970, millions of Americans participated in the first Earth Day. As the UGA Water Committee continues it work, we are focused on the water aspect of Earth Day, but realize that what happens on the soil has a direct impact on the water resources. Likewise, what we do on the land and water directly affects the air and what is in the air affects the water and soil.
This week at the GAE4-HA meeting, we discussed how we could better assist K-12 teachers in presenting water related Standards in club meetings or generally helping through other methods.
So earth Day is on the calendar as April 22, but as we look to educate everyone from 1 to 101 on the importance of the connection between water, soil and air — everyday is Earth Day — Happy Earth Day!
