This week’s Golden Egg clue was the date (day, month and year) of the first celebration of Earth Day, April 22, 1970.

For our Facebook friends, there was a bonus question for an extra entry into the contest. The question: What was the name of the US Senator that spearheaded the creation of Earth Day, was Senator Senator Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin . Congrats to Arthur Moody for winning this week’s bonus entry!
