Sparta Township, N.J. - Home Sparta Township, N.J.

Forty-seven years ago an inspiring national movement to protect the environment crystallized.
Since 1970, Earth Day has been celebrated annually on April 22nd in national and global proportions.  It is promoted and supported at the state level by DEP, the New Jersey Commission on Environmental Education and Inter-agency Work Group, the Alliance for New Jersey Environmental Education, and a host of other environmental, educational, youth, and community-based organizations.
Earth Day is celebrated in a variety of ways by schools, communities, parks and nature centers, organizations, companies, businesses, municipalities, families, volunteers, youth groups, and individuals.  This year, many communities will showcase events and school and youth programs and engage citizens in weekend community service efforts, all designed to inform the public about their natural world.
Earth Day efforts in Sparta and New Jersey will explore a variety of important areas of focus in the state, including water conservation, climate change, watershed management, air and water quality, waste reduction, open space conservation and habitat protection.  Local Earth Day programs, projects, and events may highlight these topics, and explore local environmental priorities in addition to hosting community service initiatives, such as waterway, beach, and park cleanups.
It is extremely important for New Jerseyans to realize that those who participate in the public and educational processes directed towards environmental improvement will help determine the quality of the environment for the next generation.
