West Seattle Walk focuses on sustainability and interaction

RSVP now for FREE information walk extended to November

West Seattle residents are invited to attend some community walks that focus on the "interaction between the built and natural environments," as part of West Seattle InMotion.

The West Seattle Walks Series continues with the fourth and final walk on Saturday, November 3, during which participants will tour one of Seattle’s key sustainable developments.

Throughout October, Feet First Neighborhood Walking Ambassadors Chas Redmond, Bryan Fiedorczyk, and Cathy and Jake Jaramillo led well-attended guided walks covering unique features in West Seattle including Fauntleroy Park, Alki from Above, and the Longfellow Creek Legacy Trail. These Neighborhood Walking Ambassadors are Feet First volunteers who help promote safer, more walkable communities by leading neighborhood walks. Over 50 residents of West Seattle and surrounding areas came together to walk, learn about their community, connect with neighbors, and enjoy the beautiful fall scenery.

The fourth walk in this series will be led by Feet First Neighborhood Walking Ambassador Timothy Lowry, PE, LEED AP, transportation planner, and watershed planner.

Participants will also learn about Low Impact Development and Green Stormwater Infrastructure installations and how it relates to the Longfellow Creek watershed.

Feet First Executive Director Lisa Quinn said, “The Neighborhood Walks provide an enjoyable opportunity for people to learn about the relationship between their actions and a healthy environment and vibrant neighborhood. Neighborhood Walking Ambassadors share their knowledge and experiences of the natural and built environments with their neighbors in a unique and intimate way.”
