Songs for Earth Day


In 1963, a United States Senator by the name of Gaylord Nelson grew concerned about the state of our environment. He felt people should be better informed on how to protect and nurture our surroundings. Through his efforts and the help of other concerned people, the first Earth Day was celebrated on April 22, 1970 and since then, it has spread all over the world. On this day we are reminded that we should all do our share to protect Mother Nature. Here are several links to songs that you can use to celebrate Earth Day.
