UNO's Earth Day of Service takes place on April 21, 2023 - the theme is "Earth is our Home, Handle with Care."


Earth Day is an opportunity for us to serve the community with a few things in mind; how to be more aware of the environment around us, how to be good stewards of it, and how to care for each other and the places in which we live.
