As Earth Day plans started to take shape, the COVID-19 pandemic began, requiring the world to shift gears. While events have been cancelled and we’re sheltering in place for the health and safety of our families and communities, we plan to virtually recognize Earth Day and continue to raise awareness about the impacts of climate change. 

While we cannot celebrate Earth Day in person, we can still come together and urge decision-makers to take climate change action! Join Surfrider by signing our climate change action alert to Congress, AND participate in our virtual Earth Day photo campaign.
