Audubon Occasions Marking Earth Day 2022

While conservation and stewardship of the environment are top of mind every day across the Audubon network, Earth Day on April 22 is a special day to join the global community in celebrating the natural resources our world has to offer, and recommit ourselves to its protection. This year’s official Earth Day theme is Invest in Our Planet, and Audubon programs at the national, state, and local levels are holding events around the country demonstrating all of the ways that we can invest our time, resources, and passion for birds and the environment into creating a better future for us all.
