DNREC: Celebrate Earth Day at a DNREC event

To celebrate the 44th annual Earth Day on Tuesday, April 22, the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control is holding a variety of public events.

“For more than 40 years, Earth Day has been a day to celebrate and promote conservation of our planet. For DNREC, our environmental conservation partners, and the many community groups and volunteers who support efforts to conserve our precious natural resources, Earth Day is every day,” said DNREC Secretary Collin O’Mara. “We hope all Delawareans will join us and celebrate Earth Day by pledging to take an action that will protect our planet– for instance, riding a bike to work rather than driving a car, taking reusable bags to the grocery store, planting a tree, or turning off a light when you leave the room.”
