The Marine Corps theme for Earth Day 2014 is “Global Reach – Local Action.” This message is meant to succinctly characterize our world-wide expeditionary focus, while simultaneously protecting the environmental quality of our home bases and stations and the health and welfare of our Marines, families, and civilians. Installations are encouraged to focus Earth Day efforts on local activities, both on base and in surrounding communities.
Earth Day is officially celebrated worldwide on 22 April 2014. Installations are encouraged to focus their Earth Day efforts the week of 21-25 April. (http://www.marines.mil/News/Messages/MessagesDisplay/tabid/13286/Article/162143/earth-day-message-2014.aspx)
