The National Park Service Active Transportation Guidebook: A Resource on Supporting Walking and Bicycling for National Parks and their Partners aims to assist and inspire parks and their partners to identify and pursue opportunities that enhance active transportation to and within national parks. The NPS is holding two webinars that will provide an overview of the topics included in the Guidebook and feature guest speakers who will describe active transportation projects and programs at parks around the country.
The target audience for these webinars is park staff and partner organizations that are interested in learning more about active transportation opportunities in national parks.
Topics covered on the second webinar include:
Overview of the NPS Active Transportation Guidebook and the benefits of active transportation for national parks.
Discussion of how partnerships with surrounding communities can support active transportation efforts.
Overview of the types of active transportation programs that parks and partners can implement, including tours, car-free opportunities, bicycle rental and sharing systems, and programs for employees.
Description of innovative technologies and emerging trends in active transportation that are impacting national parks.
