Come Sweat for Science at the HeatMappers Walk in downtown Phoenix. Be part of a public science experiment to establish the baseline for creating walkable, cool corridors in Phoenix.

Join us at Edison Park on September 29th from 4-6 p.m. The HeatMappers Walk is a community effort to establish a baseline for thermal comfort along strategic walking routes and bus stop locations slated for shade and cooler conditions in downtown Phoenix. Your participation will help map a collective experience of heat on the streets of Phoenix that can be tracked and measured and IMPROVED over time. We promise to hydrate you during the walk and feed you snacks.

The Nature’s Cooling Systems Project is led by The Nature Conservancy in Arizona in partnership with Arizona State University’s Urban Climate Research Center and Urban Resilience to Extremes Sustainability Research Network, Central Arizona Conservation Alliance, Phoenix Revitalization Corporation, RAILMesa, and Puente Movement.

This is a FREE event and you must register to participate as a walker. RSVP for the event here. You must also have health insurance to participate as a walker and will need to sign a waiver before walking.
