Green Ways Logo

Greenways to School Campaign – The Greenways to School campaign, funded by a $175,000 grant from the Marin Community Foundation's Climate Change initiative, features the new SchoolPool on-line trip sharing program and school and classroom challenges with cash incentives. Classes can earn from $50 – $100 and schools can earn from $500 to $1,500 by increasing their number of green trips to school.

WalkandRoll logo

Walk and Roll to School Day Guidebook – Walk and Roll to School Days are weekly or monthly events that encourage students to walk and bike to school through rewards and outreach. During a Walk and Roll to School Day, volunteers host a greeting table with food and/or rewards for students that walk and bike to school. Special Walking School Buses or Bike Trains can also be organized as a way to encourage groups of students to travel together.

iWalk logo

International Walk to School Day Materials – Promote International Walk to School Day with colorful posters and other goodies. You can order an 11 x 17 color poster plus an editable flyer that allows you to put your own information on where to meet and contact information. We also have special items to hand out to students who walk or bike that day.

School Pool Marin

SchoolPool – SchoolPool Marin is an on-line trip matching program for parents who want to share in the duties of getting children to and from school through walking, biking, riding the bus, or carpooling. We offer guidance on how to form a neighborhood schoolpool. For more information contact SchoolPool Marin.

Faith and Fantasia logo

Faith and Fantasia – Faith would love to walk to school but her mother worries about her safety. But Faith worries more about her mother's driving. Fortunately, Faith has her superhero alter-ego, Fantasia, who saves the day when Faith's mother has too many near misses. This light-hearted book is a way for parents to learn about safe driving through their children. They read the book together and at the end the child gives the parent a quiz. For ages 6 – 8.

Poster Art logo

Poster Art – Poster Art engages students to paint colorful posters to promote walking, biking and carpooling to school. The end result of a Poster Art class is the creation of 10 – 12 eye-catching posters to hang on fences and bulletin boards. The signs help to build awareness of the school's effort to increase the level of walkers and bikers. Poster Art has been a big success in promoting International Walk and Roll to School Day and other walking/biking events at Marin schools. The posters can also be used by walking neighborhood groups to promote traffic reduction campaigns.
