Earth Day 2014
Earth Day falls on April 22, 2014 and events are held worldwide by the nonprofit Earth Day Network. The first Earth Day was celebrated in 1970 by Denis Hayes and it is now considered to be the largest secular holiday in the world.
Spokane’s Earth Day event will be held on Saturday, April 26th, and for the first time in 6 years will not be held on West Main. Happily, the event we’ve all grown to love is back and bigger than ever. This year, it’s back in Riverfront Park! Among a multitude of great organizations working tirelessly to save our planet, Spokane Riverkeeper will be there to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Expo ’74 and all that is awesome about Earth Day!

The national theme for Earth Day 2014 is “Green Cities.” Waert Day Spokane is partnering with the City of Spokane to celebrate environmentally progressive policies and highlight the work being done to protect our region’s earth, water, and air.
This year’s Earth Day Spokane event is also a celebration of the 40th Anniversary of Expo ’74, which was the first World’s Fair with an environmental theme. As we showcase the environmental progress that has been made in the past four decades, we must also highlight the important work that is still to come.
Please join us as we celebrate the Earth and learn how we can continue to build a thriving community of citizens empowered for environmental protection.
