Eagle Scout project bolsters Bicycle Tree Tour
Wednesday, May 16, 2012
Eagle Scout Jonathan Thompson recently worked with the City’s Office of Innovation and Sustainability and Forestry Division to help a greater number of bicyclists hit the trails and roads on a Bicycle Tree Tour. The tour was originally given and posted online last spring, in celebration of World Environment Day. Since then, Thompson has taken the tour a big step forward by documenting the GPS coordinates for each tree and having the on-line version formatted (by friend Taylor Lopez) into a one-page tri-fold brochure. Thompson further provided an initial run of 300 brochures available for distribution at local visitors’ centers and bike shops. Click here to see the tour.
