For many, Earth Day is every day. But while Earth Day has long been recognized as a national holiday, the Seacoast Science Center is making sure that people remember why it is so important with a week-long celebration.

It all kicks off with a free Earth Day celebration on April 20, which is slated to include a 5K trail race, live music and recycled crafts.
