Event Details

Ozone Action Days is a public awareness program that focuses on reducing ozone air pollution to improve local air quality for healthy communities. "Ditch the Keys" is an awareness-building campaign encouraging central Arkansas residents to protect air quality by using alternate modes of transportation and to reduce outdoor activities on high-ozone days.  

On May 13-17, leave the keys at home and join us for Ditch the Keys Week to reduce ground-level ozone. Your body will thank you. Your lungs will thank you. The environment definitely will thank you.
