April Celebrates Earth Day!
Join children and adults around the world to celebrate the benefits of walking and biking. Pledge to walk or bike to school on Earth Day and join thousands of students throughout Oregon and millions of people around the world to make the air around schools cleaner, increase traffic safety and support community wide heath and sustainability.
April is a great time to celebrate one of the many reasons we walk, bike, scoot, skate, take the bus and carpool to school. It’s a great way to try, start and continue to use active transportation in preparation for Walk+Bike Challenge Month in May.
Other Great News: We are excited to offer extend the deadline for the mini-grant to creat or update a Safe Routes to School Action Plan. See Application here. Action Plans have helped hundreds of schools throughout the state to develop projects and programs to increase opportunities to walk, bike, scoot and skate to school throughout the community. Grant applications with budgets up to $3000 are now due APRIL 13, 2015.
