The University of Denver (DU) has participated in Earth Day since its inception on April 22, 1970. This year, 2020, marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, which gave a voice to an emerging public consciousness about the state of our planet.
All items featured were gathered from the University Libraries Special Collections and its government documents holdings. For more information about the history of Earth Day, visit www.earthday.org or the DU Libraries Research Help Center.
