 This module is for hike leaders and others who are interested in leading Urban Walks and earning the Pedestrian Safety Badge, which is a requirement for the Urban Walk Leader Badge. The session will focus on preparing leaders to lead Urban Walks that anticipate and manage risks and opportunities unique to leading in the urban and suburban settings.

A portion of the session is dedicated to reviewing real-life, pedestrian safety scenarios typical of those that Urban Walk Leaders may encounter. A passing score on the Pedestrian Safety Quiz is the final requirement to earn the Badge.

A collection of reference materials for use by prospective Urban Walk leaders will be provided by email. Participants are encouraged to review these documents before the seminar.
