A Special Note from Fairfield Earth Day Co-Chairs,
Larry Kaley and Mary Hogue

It’s been twenty-one years of observing folks, face to face, enjoying and
learning about sustainable and organic methods to use in their daily lives.
Exhibits, round table discussions, talks, entertainment, art and more
create the positive experiences one has attending Fairfield’s Earth Day
Celebration. Enjoying the interaction of eager attendees and exhibitors
gave those of us involved in planning and working at the event a fulfilling
sense of satisfaction. We knew that in our small way, we made Fairfield,
America and the rest of the world a better place to live in.

Earth Day Turns 50

Earth Day was first observed in 1970. Today, over 190 countries recognize Earth Day, with 2020 being the 50th anniversary.

Earth Day founder Gaylord Nelson came up with the idea for a national day to focus on the environment after Nelson, then a U.S. Senator from Wisconsin, witnessed the ravages of a massive oil spill in Santa Barbara, California, in 1969.
