  • April 21, 2021: Ripples From The First Earth Day, 51 Years Ago In Ann Arbor

    Thursday, April 22nd is Earth Day, and, due to the pandemic, most celebrations will be virtual this year.  Still, the idea of Earth Day has endured since it all started with a series of teach-ins at the University of Michigan in 1970.  U-M Civil and Enviromental Engineering Professor Glen Daigger was there and joined WEMU's David Fair to discuss those heady days and what the future may bring. For questions or ideas for future show topics, please contact Mary Mathias Lapp.

Tune in to 89.1FM WEMU to hear the shows on air, or listen to archived shows on our Issues of the Environment page.
