Earth Day

Since America's first official Earth Day on April 22, 1970, New Jersey has become one of the leaders in recognizing environmental problems and developing creative solutions. The state was the third in the country to consolidate existing programs into a unified major state agency to administer environmental and conservation efforts. Established by law on that initial Earth Day, the NJ DEP began managing natural resources and solving pollution problems. Since 1970, Earth Day has been celebrated annually on April 22nd, both nationally and internationally.
