Celebrate Earth Day with these 15 events

James Madison Park

The seeds that grew into Earth Day were first planted by Wisconsin Senator Gaylord Nelson more than 50 years ago, and the tradition is still going strong around the world today. There are plenty of events in Madison to celebrate our planet — which is especially pertinent after the United Nations released a report in early April that warns the Earth is “firmly on track toward an unlivable world.”

Help clean up Madison parks, recycle your old electronics or plant trees to help do your part in making a better world for everyone.
