McConnell, Nelson and Hayes all continued to be strong environmental advocates long after Earth Day was founded.

In 1976, McConnell and anthropologist Margaret Mead founded the Earth Society Foundation, which drew dozens of Nobel laureates as sponsors. And he later published his "77 Theses on the Care of Earth" and the "Earth Magna Charta."

In 1995, President Bill Clinton presented Nelson with the Presidential Medal of Freedom for his role in founding Earth day and for raising public awareness of environmental issues and promoting environmental action.

Hayes has received the Jefferson Medal for Outstanding Public Service, several awards of appreciation and achievement from the Sierra Club, the National Wildlife Federation, The Natural Resources Council of America, and many other groups. And in 1999, Time magazine named Hayes "Hero of the Planet."
