He discussed the town and gown collaborations, community gardens, saving the local swamp, university green funds, and the big exciting ValloCycle program.  In 2011, a group of university professors, librarians, and community leaders launched ValloCycle, the first community-wide bike share program in the state of Alabama.  This presentation described the ValloCycle program and a focus on how a campus library has worked to support other environmental initiatives in the community.
