Watch now: Earth Day, 50 years later
50 years ago, Wisconsin Sen. Gaylord Nelson planted a seed that would grow into a nationwide movement.  

A simple idea that brought about a world of change.

In this special 50th anniversary special broadcast, we`ll look back on the past five decades of the environmental movement and what`s in store for our future generation.

It`s estimated 20 million Americans came together in cities across the U.S. on April 22, 1970 for the first-ever Earth Day, calling for lawmakers to take action to protect the planet. It was the start of a new era of legislation to keep our environment healthy.


Ken Notes: WKOW did a great 20 minute program on Earth Day at 50 years. This should be added to you must watch list. It is also a great opportunity for those at home with young students
