Earth DayJust because you can’t gather with a group of like-minded people doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate Earth Day on April 22.

This year’s event — the 50th anniversary of the holiday — will be celebrated online with Digital Earth Day, according to the Earth Day Network.

“Amid the recent outbreak, that means using our voices to drive action online rather than in person,” said Kathleen Rogers, president of Earth Day Network.
