This Event: May be of interest to the LGBTQ community
To celebrate Earth Month and Monona’s Year of the Bike, the Aldo Leopold Nature Center is capping off a ‘Green Living Month’ theme in our indoor exhibits with a fascinating talk on the benefits of biking on Wednesday, April 29th at 6 pm. There are numerous reasons to ride your bicycle — it’s fun, it’s convenient, it’s cheaper and better for the environment than driving, and it’s good for your health. There are also various barriers to bicycling. At the next talk in ALNC’s 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 ‘co-benefits’ of bicycling. Explore the latest research into these benefits and learn how you can get motivated to bicycle with Monona’s Year of the Bike and other community efforts towards sustainability.
This free lecture will be held at the Aldo Leopold Nature Center on Wednesday, April 29th at 6 pm and will be followed at 7 pm by a tour of our green facility and exhibit area. Pre-registration is preferred.
