Why? Because walking/biking/scootering to school is:
Fun - Be with friends, play outside, see deer, raccoon, fox, eat blackberries, walk down into the fog.
Healthy - Encourage a physically active lifestyle at an early age to fight our current epidemic of child obesity and diabetes.
Good for the Environment - Decrease motor vehicle trips which contribute to air pollution, global warming and fossil fuel consumption.
Educational - Learn about safety – how to walk or scooter on the left and bike on the right, cross streets carefully, and watch out for motor vehicles.
Learn about our environment – daily weather patterns, seasons, local happenings.
Save money and buy less gas!
