Have you seen the signs or noticed the arrows stenciled on the sidewalks around town? That’s Cittaslow Sebastopol’s Park Once and Walk  project.

Join Geoffrey Skinner in the downtown plaza at 9:00 a.m. to explore the Sebastopol Pedestrian Lines — aka the Ped Lines, following the color-coded routes to Ives Park, Florence Avenue Art and (depending on the time we have), the Laguna Wetlands Preserve. You will learn more about this 6-week pilot project, and can complete each of the three surveys for a chance win the $100 gift cards— one for each PedLine.

Wear comfortable shoes, bring water and a snack.

You can learn more about the project at SebPedLine.com

For each walk, survey respondents will be entered into a drawing for a $100 gift card.
