Celebrating Earth Day 2020

Today, we celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day. In the midst of a global pandemic and physical distancing, many of us are finding solace and hope in the miracle of spring emerging around us. We hope you can get outside and allow nature to bring you peace and joy.

Executive Director Julie Johnson has recorded a brief message for you in celebration of this day. We invite you to explore some special Earth Day  resources we put together for you (below), and to check out our COVID-19 Digital Hitchcock page for more activities.
