You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of a difference you want to make.

— Dr. Jane Goodall

Since 1970, Earth Day has been celebrated on April 22 to give a voice to environmental consciousness and inspire people to take action for their planet. The Natural History Museums of Los Angeles County protect and share more than 35 million specimens and artifacts, the largest natural and cultural history collection in the western United States. By understanding the world around us, past and present, we gain a better appreciation for our planet and for all who share it. 

Thank you to those who joined us for Earth Day at NHM! We hope you'll join us again next year, so keep a lookout for the date of our Earth Day 2024 celebration!

Please enjoy this collection of online activities, content, and videos to inspire your exploration outdoors this Earth Day.
