Teaching Kids About Earth Day at Denver Children’s Museum

Today marks the 46th official Earth Day. Gaylord Nelson, the founder of Earth Day, established the holiday in 1970 after a large oil spill occurred in Santa Barbara, California.

Meteorologist Tracey Anthony explores the Children’s Museum of Denver, showing us ways the community is teaching our youth about the environment. Tracey says that these kids are learning ways to “reducing waist, reusing products, and learn what goods are safe to recycle.”
