Summerlin Nevada Earth Day 2006
Earth Day was founded by Senator Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin. He was disturbed that an issue as important as our environment was not addressed in politics or by the media, so he created the first Earth Day, on April 22, 1970. An estimated 20 million people nationwide attended festivities that day including residents of Summerlin Nevada Las Vegas.
