April 22 is Earth Day and, in its honor, the Sierra Club has compiled a video of many celebrities, including Jessica Alba, Kristen Bauer, and Mayim Bialik, wishing America “Happy Earth Day” as well as sharing their “favorite pieces of America.”

Sierra Club founder, John Muir, believed that if people spent time outdoors, they would fall in love with nature and then be inspired to work to protect it. In this spirit, the Sierra Club is encouraging Americans to spend more time outdoors and celebrate “the mountains, deserts, grasslands, forests and whitewater rapids that make up the great outdoors.”

To this end, they are offering a trailfinder app for iPhone and the opportunity to win a trip to the North Cascades. To enter, visit the website and pledge to spend more time outdoors.

This year’s Earth Day comes as global deforestation remains a problem. While Amazon rainforest destruction rates dropped in 2011, forests in Brazil and Malaysia were demolished.

To learn more about Earth Day, check out these books. And feel free to share your favorite places!
