Earth Day is coming. Yeah, it’s nine weeks away. Which is plenty of time, if you intend to catch an annual event in your city, celebrate in the hood or even head to the National Mall for the DC celebration.

But if you’re planning an event around Earth Day 2009 (April 22 is a Wednesday this year), then SHEESH!, you’d best get on it. The Earth Day Network can help. They’ve posted an orientation page of info on the 2009 events, put out an Organizer’s Guide and an Earth Day in A Box, an assortment of tips and info.

You can register your event online at the EDN website, buy promotional merchandise (including a cool poster that rivals last year’s), find out more about “Earth Day on Campus” and see how EDN is partnering with schools during National Environmental Education Week, April 12-18.

You can read more about the history of Earth Day on the website. Did you know that more than 1 billion people now commemorate this celebration, which began in 1970?

Not all of the information on 2009 events is posted yet. Be patient with them, they’ve got a world of stuff to process.
