The Tale of Lucy Lake

Things Have Started to Change

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is the government agency responsible for protecting the environment throughout the nation. EPA runs an Acid Rain Program to reduce the amount of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide gases in the air, the two primary causes of acid rain.

Since the program began, there has been less sulfur dioxide in the air in the United States. Hopefully, the plants and animals throughout the country—particularly in the northeastern forests where acid rain has hit the hardest—will soon begin to recover.

To learn more about EPA's Acid Rain Program, ask an adult to help you follow this link to our Web site: https://www.epa.gov/airmarkets/arp.
