Environmental Health’s Community Active Living Coalition (CALC) will celebrate its year anniversary with a reception and photo exhibit that shows resident experiences on what it is like to live, work, and play in Denver neighborhoods. The PhotoVoices exhibit will include a range of subjects that impact health, active living, and transportation, including parks, bus stations, streets, playgrounds, and intersections.
