Idea for Graphic
Map Showing Lane County Water Bottle Refill Locations and Outdoor Fountains. (
The map is being developed and hosted by Lane Community College with the assistance of the Lane County Tap Water Coalition.  It is in the early stages and will expand soon beyond the Eugene/Springfield area.

The image could be an internationally recognized one although it would be hard to illustrate the different ways water is offered (traditional water fountain, water bottle reill station, water container at a cafe, etc.).

Recipe Links & Other Information for Everyday Cooking Series

The idea for this website came after reading an article in the January/February 2010 issue of AARP: The Magazine called “Miracle Makeover”, by Dan Buettner.  It’s the story of how people in the small town of Albert Lea, Minnesota, got motivated, had fun moving more and eating well, made new friends, found a greater sense of purpose and maybe added years to their lives. Albert Lea was featured again in this 2014 Scientific American Blog: "What if we all just stopped trying to lose weight?"  By Patrick Mustain, Scientific American Blog, May 22, 2014.

Our area already has a number of opportunities to help people in our community engage in these healthy behaviors.  This website aims to be a one-stop hub for inspiration, opportunities and information about healthy living in Lane County.
