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.
