4.22.12: Environment in a Day

Earth Day happens just once a year. What will this global moment on 4.22.12 look like? Share your best photo of the day.

How can you join in? Join Flickr if you haven’t yet and get ready to submit your best shot of our environment how you see it (good, bad, landscapes, city-scapes, humans, wildlife, wild-humans – it’s up to you!) on April 22, 2012. Check out how to share one from your phone with Flickr mobile!

Take a photo any time during the twenty-four hour period of April 22 where you are, then upload it to your Flickr account to share it with the State of the Environment group.

We’re accepting one (1) contribution per Flickr member into the group from midnight ET Saturday, April 21 until midnight ET Saturday, April 28. You have a week to submit your single photo, but it must be taken on Earth Day April 22!

This is open for global participation, but EPA will be highlighting one photo from each U.S. state or territory and featuring the state with the most participation!

Spread the word. Get outside. Have some fun and capture the moment where humankind celebrates our planet Earth.

Stunning images of America’s environments are returning to public view — and acclaim

Read the full story at MinnPost.

As a dazzling catalog of this country’s myriad environments, often under siege, the DOCUMERICA project would be hard to top.

Just now returning to public view, DOCUMERICA’s 80,000 images form a stunning record of American life, work and landscape at the dawn of modern environmental consciousness, in the early 1970s.

Over the next year they will be coming out of the National Archives for a series of traveling displays. But already some 15,000 images – including more than 500 made in Minnesota – can be viewed online.
