Earth Day 2022

It's time to take action!

Earth Day is a celebration of the planet we call home — but it's also a call to action, one that is now more important than ever before. This year's official theme is "Restore Our Earth."

We know many of you are still at home, and those that aren't are working and navigating the world in new ways. With that in mind, on this year's Earth Day, we're sharing how we protect Washington and ways that you can also safely help protect the environment and "Restore Our Earth."

You can join us between April 19 – 23 to celebrate Earth Day! Below, see some of what we do and what you can do. You can also find more on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts.

Last year we celebrated 50 years here at Ecology. You can learn more about our history and what we’ve accomplished in the first half-century on our 50th  celebration page.

What you can do

We do a lot of work in Puget Sound. Read about our agency's efforts to protect this region of the state. 

We work with the Nature Conservancy and the Puget Sound Partnership to accelerate integrated efforts to reduce flood risks and restore habitat along Washington's major river corridors.

Along with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, we oversee the U.S. Department of Energy's cleanup of the Hanford Site, one of the world's most contaminated nuclear sites. 

Celebrate Earth Day and recreate both safely and responsibly.
