Celebration: Earth 2023

An Annual Event by HMNS

The concept of Earth Day was envisioned in 1970 by conservationists who were passionate about preserving the Earth and the environments we all inhabit. Since then, the day has inspired volunteers and citizen scientists to work together to promote conservation.

This big blue marble that we call home is much too important to relegate to one day. That’s why HMNS is celebrating Earth Day all month long in April with special exhibits, tours and activities that raise awareness about the issues affecting our environment and what we can do to continue to protect the Earth.
