The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) yesterday announced the launch of an interactive Earth Day section of its website offering a one-stop shop for information about Earth Day and environmental events throughout Pennsylvania.
“Using today’s technology to inform the public about important environmental efforts is invaluable,” DEP Secretary Mike Krancer said. “Earth Day is a great opportunity for us to use that technology to engage and educate the people we serve.”
The webpage includes several new features and offers a wealth of information about Earth Day. Site features include the Pennsylvania Earth Day proclamation from Governor Corbett, an interactive calendar searchable by county where event planners can promote their activities, biographies of environmental professionals with information about environmental careers and links to educational resources for educators.
Links to Earth Day information include:
- Proclamation from Governor Tom Corbett
- Earth Day Calendar of Events
- Educational Resources
- Environmental Progress in Action – Poster and Teacher’s Guide
- Pennsylvania Environmental Heroes Game
- Earth Day Fact Sheet
- Facts About Environmental Professionals

Earth Day is Sunday, April 22, and this year’s theme is “Honoring Pennsylvania’s Environmental Public Servants.” For more information or to access the DEP Earth Day webpage, please click HERE.
