From our friends at WABI Burien:

Seeking Volunteers for the October Statewide Pedestrian and Bicyclist Count

We need your help! The annual volunteer-based count of people walking and biking in communities all across Washington led by WSDOT, is essential for funding and planning for safer places to walk and bike.

Volunteer for as little as 2 hours on 1 day

Volunteers needed for October statewide Pedestrian and Bicyclist Count 2Cascade Bicycle Club is recruiting and training volunteers statewide to ensure a broad and accurate count.

This year the statewide count will fall on three days:

The volunteer shifts are:

    • 7 to 9 a.m. and 4 to 6 p.m. on any of the three count days.

You may volunteer for as little as just one 2-hour shift, on one day… or more if you’d like.

In 2012, WABI-ists, Tracie Crone, her daughter, Sierra, and son, Milan, volunteered at the sunny intersection of Ambaum and SW 144th. Their efforts assist in long-term planning that they and their friends will benefit from. And what a concrete way to learn about community activism. Thank you! (Photo ©Maureen Hoffmann)
