Stars are celebrating Earth Day 2017 on Saturday, and supporting the first-ever March For Science. See tweets from Hollywood celebrities below.

Earth Day, marked annually on April 22, began in 1970 to support environmental causes, namely protecting the planet in all of its glory. This year, however, the pseudo-holiday is coinciding with the inaugural March For Science. Taking place in Washington, D.C., along with cities across the globe, the protests are meant to recognize the importance of the sciences, and the influence they should have on policy.

On social media, celebs are calling attention to both occasions. Sharing the above photo on Instagram, Troian Bellisario wrote, “Happy Earth Day! Today, let’s do something to help our bee friends (whose hives had declines of 44% last year!) Join me and @BurtBeesUS and take a #SelflessSelfie!

Corinne Bailey Rae wrote on Twitter, “‘Life is shining around you…’ #EarthDay appreciate the nature we so frequently take for granted.” Along with a news story about the damage caused to the planet in a 24-hour period, Chelsea Clinton tweeted, “This is a terrific resource for #EarthDay & every day #ItsYourWorld.” Richard Branson also encouraged, “This #EarthDay, join the fight to turn an invasive species into a sustainable food source.”

George Takei tweeted, “A shout out to all those today who #MarchForScience. The truth is out there. Embrace it. Cherish it. Protect it.” Ron Howard remarked, “i’m proud of friends and family who are marching today celebrating humankind’s vital drive to grow through truth & scientific discovery.” And Jessica Biel encouraged, “Los Angeles!

It’s our duty to the next generation. #HAPPYEARTHDAY.”

Along the same lines, Larry King similarly, “Happy #EarthDay! Let’s join together to celebrate — and preserve — our beautiful planet!” Paula Abdul offered, “Happy #EarthDay! How can we honor our planet & be kind to it DAILY? Let’s be lovingly mindful of ALL life on earth.” Sharing a candid photo of his son, Josh Duhamel said, “If the planet is not important to you, think about who we’re leaving it to.” And, along with his foundation, Leonardo DiCaprio urged, “This #EarthDay, get informed.”

President Donald Trump also tweeted, “Today on Earth Day, we celebrate our beautiful forests, lakes and land. We stand committed to preserving the natural beauty of our nation.” The message garnered a mixed response, with Don Cheadle replying, “Uh … huh?”
