I thought there's an overlap between families who love to bike and families who love to be outdoors so I'm forwarding this to you all. Read on for more information and for details about ways to learn more and get involved.Best,Lainie---------- Forwarded message ----------
Three exciting things for you to know about related to getting kids outdoors in the city:
1. Please check out the draft www.sfcan.org. With the support of a Seed Fund grant we are in the process of creating a website which will function as an interactive information resource for the broad community of people interested in connecting San Francisco children and youth with the outdoors. PHOTOS ARE NEEDED to represent the variety of ways that kids are engaging with our urban environments.
2. Please help solicit feedback about the draft San Francisco Children’s Outdoor Bill of Rights (on the home page of www.sfcan.org). Following up on the spring Forum focusing on the nationwide movement of Children’s Outdoor Bill of Rights we are rolling out a draft of the San Francisco Children’s Outdoor Bill of Rights seeking both input and endorsements over the next six months.
3. Our next Forum will be Thursday November 15th at SF Environment’s EcoCenter (across the street from the Main Library).
This will be the first of a series of Forums that will explore the liability of outdoor play. See the full details below…
THANKS and hope to see you on the 15th! Please forward to interested colleagues in the San Francisco community.
