April 22nd is officially the day we celebrate our home, our planet, our Earth. On this day, our environmental issues are promoted in hopes to bring awareness of what we need to do to take better care of our planet.
Some of the issues brought up during this time are global warming, climate change, pollution and the conservation of water. In addition, many cities hold special events to promote Earth Day. Orange County has several events and if you are looking for a place to celebrate our home, look no further. We have a few suggestions for you.
