A date to remember

April 22, 1995 will be the 25th Anniversary of Earth Day. Worldwide, an expected half-billion people are expected to take part. Each will demonstrate their commitment to - and concern for - the earth in their own way. They will attend rallies, fairs and conferences, plant trees, participate in cleanups and raise money for and contribute to their chosen environmental organizations.
Earth Day 95 also marks the sixth anniversary of San Diego Earth Day. SDED is a volunteer-run, nonprofit organization dedicated to a clean, healthy, prosperous future. Events throughout the year encourage people to take individual action for the future.
Projects being planned locally include: cleanups, walkathons, tree-plantings, environmental art projects, Business Environmental Acheivement awards, the VIP (Very Important Planet) reception, the TEAM Passport for a Better World and, of course, the EarthFair.
More than 70,000 people are expected to attend the sixth annual EarthFair, to be held in Balboa Park on Sunday, April 23, 1995 from 10:00am - 5:00pm. EarthFair will feature more than 250 displays and exhibits by nonprofit organizations, companies with environmental goods and services, and local, state and national government organizations. EarthFair will also host four stages of entertainment, natural foods and a special children's activity area. EarthFair is the largest free environmental event in California, produced entirely by 400 volunteers.
