Regarding the Moving Planet Sustainability Tour - the walkers will have 3 stops, not just 2, missing only the Living Classroom stop. Had to be that way - bikers can cover more ground than walkers.

Whoops! Thanks for the correction, Gary. Hope to see lots of people out on the tour on Saturday afternoon!
