We had a successful second webinar of the Wyoming Active Transportation Bike | Walk | Trails “Eductional Lunch” Webinar Series on October 1st. The webinar, entitled “Encouraging Active Transportation for a Healthier Wyoming” presented useful information on how Active Transportation can positively impact the overall health of Wyoming communities and their residents. If you missed it, you can view the webinar presentation and slide deck below. And remember that there are still two more webinars to attend (one every two weeks).

Encouraging Active Transportation for a Healthier Wyoming
Efforts to increase active transportation—walking and bicycling—can have profoundly positive impacts to public health. Learn about the role of active transportation in improving Wyoming’s public health and how local agencies and their partners can encourage more Wyomingites to walk and bicycle.

Developing Bicycle Route Networks for Active Wyoming Communities
Rural, low-volume roadways can serve as bicycle routes to provide opportunities for recreational bicycling. Learn how communities can take advantage of their existing roadways to establish bicycle routes by installing wayfinding, producing maps, and using technology to help recreational bicyclists explore the Wyoming landscape.
Presented by Joel Shaffer, EIT, Engineer, Toole Design
We sincerely hope that you will you attend this webinar series and hope that you will encourage others to do so, as well. We believe that the more people who are made aware of the wide-ranging benefits that can accrue to Wyoming communities from promoting active transportation initiatives the sooner these communities and their residents can realize those benefits.
