Bicycling for the Earth and Your Health
April 29, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Celebrate Monona’s Year of the Bike and Green Living month at the Aldo Leopold Nature Center with the next in our public lecture series on nature, climate, energy, and sustainability! Join special guest Maggie Grabow (PhD, MPH) from the University of Wisconsin’s Global Health Institute to learn about the environmental and human health benefits of bicycling.
There are numerous reasons to ride your bicycle: it’s fun, convenient, cheaper, and better for the environment than driving — and it’s good for your health.
There are also various barriers to bicycling as well, oftentimes dependent on where you live. Research on the many “co-benefits” of bicycling will be presented along with ways you can get motivated to bicycle during Monona’s Year of the Bicycle.
Registration is encouraged as space is limited.
Bike to this event! In keeping with the Aldo Leopold Nature Center’s interest in the environment, sustainability and healthy living, the reduction of carbon emissions and pollution, and following the Leopold ethic of ‘living lightly on the land,’ we have a policy of encouraging employees and visitors to use alternative and sustainable transportation choices to and from ALNC.

All bikers, large and small, are encouraged to wear bike helmets.
ALNC is proud to support the City of Monona’s Year of the Bike!
