Nebraska Statewide Arboretum
We are saddened to have to miss this year's free recreational tree climb. It is always one of the biggest highlights of Earth Day Omaha when you get to explore Nebraska's state champion swamp white oak from 50' up in the canopy. We are thankful to the friendly facilitators who train, secure and supervise the climbers with a rope and harness year after year!
The tree climb is presented and organized by Nebraska Statewide Arboretum. Learn more about them at their website:

Omaha Healthy Kids Alliance
Omaha Healthy Kids Alliance (OHKA) is a children's environmental health nonprofit whose mission is to improve children's health through healthy homes. Our main goal is to bring awareness and education to families in the city about environmental hazards, asthma, lead poisoning, and how homes impact health.
We believe that education is fundamental for empowering
people and creating change. We strive to create environmental equality in Omaha for all by offering education on health hazards in the home, tenant legal rights, environmental testing, and information on the community resources available in the city.
To learn more about home hazards or our services, call 402-934-9700 or email email@example.com. While our staff are not providing environmental assessments at this time, we are happy to provide education over the phone and place you on the waiting list for when we resume our field work.
