Eat Smart, Move More North Carolina
“Eat Smart, Move More North Carolina is a statewide movement that encourages healthy eating and physical activity wherever people live, learn, work, play, and pray. Partners work together with communities, schools, and businesses to increase opportunities for healthy choices, with a vision of creating a North Carolina where healthy eating and active living are the norm, rather than the exception.”
Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center
The mission of the Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center “is to improve the quality of life in communities through the increase of safe walking and bicycling as a viable means of transportation and physical activity.” Through their Web sites, they “offer information and training to diverse audiences about health and safety, engineering, advocacy, education, enforcement, access, and mobility as it relates to pedestrians and bicyclists.”
NCSU Greenways for Wildlife
This site is a great resource for information regarding the interaction between greenways and wildlife. Design guidelines should incorporate the needs of wildlife and this site provides valuable information to establish guidelines and to attract a variety of wildlife to greenways.
