Did you know Earth Day started at Airlie? In 1969, Senator Gaylord Nelson first introduced his idea for Earth Day to a group of medical and law students participating in a conference here. The idea gained steam quickly, and the first Earth Day was held on April 22, 1970. Today, Earth Day is celebrated worldwide and continues to promote and raise environmental consciousness. At Airlie, we continue to observe this important tradition established here more than 45 years ago.
