Nebraska Earth Day Pass
In addition to a personal event, Earth Day Omaha will be virtual from April 15 to May 15 with the brand new Nebraska Earth Day Passport. | Photo courtesy of Earth Day Omaha’s FaceBook.
Instead of the traditional environmental exhibit, Earth Day Omaha, in collaboration with Sarpy County Earth Day, presents a virtual, metro-wide, month-long exhibit: the Nebraska Earth Day Passport. From April 15 to May 15, up to 10,000 participants (so-called “players”) from across the metro can log into the Nebraska Earth Day Passport and view the “booths” of the virtual exhibitors. At each booth, players compete for points and prizes on challenges ranging from dealing with exhibitors on social media to captions about environmental protection. Readers can register for the challenge, which is free to the public, by clicking here. Read the instructions for assistance with signing up and using your passport.
