A community coalition to promote bicycle & pedestrian safety in Gainesville and Alachua County, Florida.

October is Florida Greenways & Trails Month

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection’s Office of Greenways & Trails (OGT) is promoting October as Florida Greenways and Trails month.

Our goal is to have an event in every Florida County. Events including trail/trailhead dedications or openings, educational exhibits or workshops, trail rides or races, trail blazing, birding, clean-ups or any activities connected to greenways and trails are just some of the possibilities. If your community or organization would like to sponsor or coordinate an event, OGT will post the activities on its website. To learn more about Greenways and Trail month and to register an event visit http://www.dep.state.fl.us/gwt/news/gwtmonth_oct/default.htm

We have already received information on some events (such as the Withlacoochee Bike Ride) but want to be sure we capture everything that is on your calendars for October. Please pass this message along via any distribution lists you may have for area organizations or trail user groups.
