Walk to Keep Houston Cool

Join the Walk to Keep Houston Cool at Rice University on Saturday, October 18, 2014. Walkers should check in at 10:30am at the corner of Main and Sunset, just across the street from Metro Rail's Rice University/Hermann Park station. The event is free.

Walkers may choose 3 mile or 6 mile routes. Estimated walk time: 3 miles, 11am-12:15pm; 6 miles, 11am-1:30pm. Walkers may enjoy activities at the reopening of the McGovern Centennial Gardens in Hermann Park, or at the nearby Museum District and Rice Village, at the end of the walk. Visit our information table for details. Volunteers are welcome.

In addition to its health benefits, the Walk to Keep Houston Cool will raise awareness of the Houston Cool youth program. Houston Cool helps students understand the benefits of trees, including cooler temperatures and cleaner air. The program promotes math and science, urban planning, civic engagement, creativity and innovative uses of new technologies.

With the support of college interns with environmental education and urban planning backgrounds, students make plans to increase trees, gardens and green spaces in their communities. They develop methods to promote further benefits of walking and biking, reducing waste and recycling, conserving natural resources, and implementing water recovery and renewable energy systems.

Houston Cool is part of Houston Museum of Culture's innovative youth programs. Students in the program have opportunities to improve communities and involve their peers by taking part in Houston Cool student conferences and public events.

Thanks to Rice University, City of Houston, Houston Arts Alliance, Texas Commission on the Arts, Kids Write to Know, and Houston Institute for Culture for supporting Houston Cool.
