January 31, 2020, Washington DC/Boise—Earth Day Network, which coordinates the annual Earth Day, is today delighted to announce that the Idaho Conservation League (ICL) has become a key partner for 2020.

ICL, Idaho’s leading voice for conservation, joins thousands of other groups and entities world-wide dedicated to make stepped-up environmental action a cornerstone in this crucial year.

ICL’s mission is to create a conservation community in Idaho and pragmatic, enduring solutions that protect and restore the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the land and wildlife we love.

Earth Day 2020 comes 50 years after the first Earth Day which, in 1970, mobilized over 20 million citizens to demand action on the environmental challenges of the time.

Today Earth Day is observed in around 190 countries and mobilizes one billion people and close to 100,000 organizations.

The overarching theme for Earth Day 2020, 22 April, is action on climate change.
