Every April 22, an average of one billion people celebrate the largest secular observance of the calendar year: Earth Day. This celebration unites people of all cultures in a remarkable effort to impact the world we live in for the better.

Earth Day was first devised in 1970 by Wisconsin senator Gaylord Nelson after experiencing effects from the Vietnam War and the oil spill in Santa Barbara, California. It has since swelled to include international organizations and participation in every inhabited continent. The main objective is to promote awareness of the Earth’s environmental issues while performing what is possible to remedy immediate problems.

The students and faculty at Bishop Guilfoyle join in the celebration of our Earth by providing “safaris” to local 2nd graders, educating individuals, actively recycling and composting, and devising methods to minimalize Bishop Guilfoyle’s environmental footprint.

We only have one sustainable and naturally habitable Earth, and the preservation of such a suitable home often goes unnoticed. The activities held on April 22nd hopefully gave back to our earth which has given us so much.
