Earth Day at Gamiing Nature Centre
Earth Day is an annual event, celebrated on April 22, on which day events worldwide are held to demonstrate support for environmental protection. It was first celebrated in 1970, and is now coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network, and celebrated in more than 192 countries each year. We celebrate Earth Day on the Saturday closest to April 22.
Everyone, young and old, who attend Earth Day at Gamiing has an opportunity to make a Green Pledge for the year, no matter how large or small your initiative.
Outside weather permitting, you have an opportunity to write your pledge on a sticky note and post it on the wall. This will become a permanent display of pledges made during EARTH DAY 2017.
