Celebrating 50 years of Earth Day

In 2020, we’re celebrating 50 years of Earth Day! A lot has changed in 50 years, including encouraging improvements to the Cuyahoga River and other areas within Summit Metro Parks. Today and every day, we invite you to celebrate by spending time outdoors when possible. In the spirit of the holiday, we’ve compiled some environmentally friendly reading and activities.
