Happy 50th Earth Day! 50 years ago today an estimated 20 million people around the United States took to the streets to spark change in USA environmental policy. This grassroots movement was the catalyst for the creation of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Clean Water Act, Clean Air Act, and the Endangered Species Act. Fifty years later, the District continues conservation efforts here in Genesee County to protect and enhance natural resources and the environment for future generations.
