2015 Earth Wellness Festival
The annual Earth Wellness Festival (EWF) for fifth graders is now in its 21st year! Nearly 3,500 Lancaster County students from 47 schools attended EWF on March 25 & 26 at Southeast Community College in Lincoln, Nebraska.

Students discovered and explored the relationships and interdependency of land, water, air and living resources through hands-on activities. Classrooms attending the festival received pre-festival learning kits in October. At the festival, students rotated among 25-minute sessions and then attended a culminating activity with featured presenters, World Bird Sanctuary from St. Louis (website www.worldbirdsanctuary.org).

Hundreds of volunteers, area educators, environmentalists, government representatives, as well as donations from local businesses, made this educational experience possible. The EWF steering committee is comprised of eight local educational resource agencies.
