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 Restore Our Earth, which focuses on natural processes, emerging green technologies, and innovative thinking that can restore the world’s ecosystems. It is up to each and every one of us to Restore Our Earth not just because we care about the natural world, but because we live on it. We all need a healthy Earth.
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!
