We are very excited to announce that SGF Environmental Services, Ozark Greenways, and the Let’s Go Smart: Transportation Collaborative have partnered for this Enviro Flick screening at the Springfield Art Museum during Bike, Walk & Wheel Week.
Bkes vs Cars is an engaging and award winning documentary that was hand selected by our staff as a vehicle for community discussion and education centered around the bicycle.
After the screening, we invite everyone to stay and participate in a community panel led by several local influential individuals.
Panel details will be posted once finalized.
