The 50th anniversary of Earth Day will be celebrated differently this year around the world Wednesday, but a local environmental organizer says the significance of movement never changes. Wayne Kudick of Fish Creek, who has organized many Earth Day events in Door County in the past, says Earth Day was started in 1970 by Governor Gaylord Nelson. He shares the worldwide efforts represented by Earth Day beyond the celebration.
“Earth Day, Every Day” events planned in Door County this month were canceled due to the precautions taken to prevent the COVID-19 spread. The theme for Earth Day 2020 is climate action.
