Unfortunately, the virtual tree planting planned for today has been postponed to the Fall season, however, we would like to encourage you to celebrate Earth Day!

While our plans still involve reinvesting in our planet on this day, we are unable to broadcast the interaction live. There are many ways to celebrate Earth Day, so here are a few facts about this special day and other ways to celebrate:
- Earth Day, now recognized as the world鈥檚 largest civic event each year, launched the creation of the Environmental Protection Agency and passage of the Clean Air, Clean Water and Endangered Species Acts.
- The first Earth Day took place on April 22, 1970, when 20 million Americans (about 10% of the U.S. population at that time) gathered across the nation to promote environmental awareness.
- Google has created 360-degree tours of 113 different national park sites, including monuments, historic sites and shorelines that can be toured virtually. The Nature Conservancy also features a series of virtual field trips designed for grades 5-8.
- Live webcams have gained popularity since social distancing began. While people are practicing social distancing, animals are still keeping up with their daily routines. Check out live feeds of marine animals at Monterey Bay Aquarium or a series of different feeds, from remote locations throughout Africa to rescue animal facilities around the world, with Explore.org.
- Earthx, in partnership with National Geographic, is streaming everything from speaker series to film festivals to student activities via its website.

Thanks City of Fairfield Dog Park for killing nature and natural plant growth as well as possibly humans and my animals. The entrance to the dog park is directly across from my house and people think river rd is a highway and there will be accidents. I was never told about this development before it happened oh wait I'm sure it was on the internet because we aren't allowed to not be on the internet. Is it illegal to tow people with my truck because this has already caused construction workers to park in front of my house where there are already no parking signs posted from the city of Fairfield. Ok I'm done for now but I am a pissed off citizen.
