Webinar: Small Town Stories: Walkability in Rural America

January 9, 2017

All over the country towns are creating better places to live through walk and bike friendly communities. As part of the National Physical Activity Society’s efforts to assist rural communities that are seeking to make such changes, we created the Stories from Small Towns project, now in its second year.
