2012 Earth Wellness Festival
Approximately 3,100 Lancaster County fifth graders from 44 schools attended the 18th annual Earth Wellness Festival (EWF) on March 26 and 27 at Southeast Community College. Students learned about the environment and the importance of natural resources in fun, interactive sessions. More than 200 volunteers, area educators, environmentalists, and government representatives make this educational experience possible.

The festival is organized by 10 local agencies: Lower Platte South NRD, University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension in Lancaster County, Southeast Community College- Lincoln, National Drought Mitigation Center, Lincoln Public Schools, City of Lincoln, Keep Lincoln-Lancaster County Beautiful, Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Dept., UNL Environmental Studies Program, and UNL School of Natural Resources.
