Virginia is recognizing Earth Week with events across the state.

Earth Week is being hosted by various state government departments and agencies under the secretary of natural resources.

Over the next week, Gov. Bob McDonnell is scheduled to participate in a number of events recognizing the importance of conserving and protecting Virginia's natural resources.

The governor says he's moving forward with efforts to conserve an additional 400,000 acres of open space, help protect the Chesapeake Bay and establish Virginia as a green jobs zone.

McDonnell is encouraging all Virginians to get involved in conservation activities and events in their cities and counties.
