In 1970, San Francisco activist John McConnell and Wisconsin Senator Gaylord Nelson separately asked Americans to join in a grassroots demonstration. McConnell chose the spring equinox (March 21, 1970) and Nelson chose April 22 (the Old's Farmer Almanac).

Millions of Americans, each year celebrate Earth Day, not only as the opportunity to appreciate nature but also to actively engage in outdoor activities to preserve and protect the environment and the planet earth.

Echoing this national call to duty, Portland 1st Platoon's mission is to conduct a service project at the Confluence (Fort Vancouver) to restore, renew one or more of its project sites, all in the common effort to assist and support the organization and the National Park Association to connect and people to place through art and education, particularly about the cultural and economic impacts Columbia River system.
