Earth Day is celebrated annually on April 22. It was founded in 1970 as a day of education about environmental issues, and now more than 1 billion people from 192 countries participate in Earth Day activities!
The theme for the worldwide event this year is Invest In Our Planet. As individuals, we have the simple yet effective power to make our voices heard through our choices and our actions. What each of us does, and how we do it, has a huge ripple effect on our ecosystems.
The song This Pretty Planet was once used to wake up astronauts aboard the Space Shuttle. This arrangement is sung first in unison, and then in a 3 part canon. Sing and play along on ukulele or recorder!
