U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson founded Earth Day in 1970 as a nationwide grassroots effort to bring awareness to protecting the environment. For the first Earth Day 20 million Americans participated. Today, the Earth Day Network estimates more than 1 billion people participate in Earth Day activities, making it the largest secular civic event in the world.
While there are many ways to celebrate Earth Day, for parents the best way is to teach children to understand the need to protect nature in practical ways. Science and nature magazines geared toward children are great teaching tools for this effort and for this reason Magazines.com is offering science and nature magazine subscriptions at significant discounts off cover prices.
