Omaha's 2012 Earth Day set for April 21st

The city’s largest ecological celebration takes place Saturday, April 21st in Elmwood Park from 11 to 6.  Dennis Bryars is the Chairperson for the event.  

He says they hope to show people ways they can live a greener, more sustainable lifestyle.  Bryars says there will be between 75 to 100 exhibitors taking part in Earth Day Omaha.

"Some will be selling some items there, whether it be homemade, organic soups or other produce.  Others are giving out information on their different organizations.  The Papio Missouri River NRD will be there.  They will be handing out information on everything their agency does, especially how it relates to Earth Day and a greener, more sustainable environment.”

Bryars says the Earth Day Omaha Coalition will give out its annual Friend of the Environment Awards during the event.
