Earth Day Houston

On April 22, 1970, 20 million people took to the streets and college campuses and hundreds of cities to protest environmental ignorance and demand greater protections for our planet. This first Earth Day sparked the passage of major environmental legislation in the U.S. including the Clean Air, Clean Water, and Endangered Species Acts, and the creation of the Environmental Protection Agency. 

In 2024, CEC is partnering with with Green Mountain Energy Earth Day at Discovery Green and Houston Public Works Water Works Festival on Saturday, April 20, 2024 from noon to 5 PM.

This FREE festival has a focus on art! Artists have a way of helping people see the beauty of the world in new ways, and is powerful enough to change minds and hearts.
