As we look to the future with optimism, we cannot forget about the vulnerability of Earth's systems and our duties to protect, sustain, and educate about the Earth. The theme of Earth Day 2021 is Restore the Earth. To celebrate Earth Day, we welcome two Westfield State Alumni back to speak about their role in restoring Earth.
