Healthy Places, Healthy People

Please join Keith Laughlin, President of Rails-to-Trails Conservancy, as he discusses the many benefits of public investment in the “green infrastructure” of trails and greenways.  Laughlin will argue that such investments combat the alarming obesity epidemic by giving us safe places to walk and bicycle, while contributing to the long-term economic, environmental and social sustainability of the places we live.
