43rd Annual Earth Day today!

ALBANY -- The state Department of Environmental Conservation is sponsoring events around the state all week to mark the 43rd anniversary of Earth Day.
The first Earth Day was held on April 22, 1970, the same year New York's DEC and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency were created. Earth Day was founded by U.S. Sen. Gaylord Nelson after he toured the devastation of the 1969 massive oil spill in Santa Barbara, Calif.
On Monday, DEC hosts a citizen science eel project along the Hudson River in Staatsburg, a birdwatching walk at Peebles Island State Park in Waterford, and a green cleaning product workshop in Depew.
