April 27 through May 1 - Air Quality Awareness Week
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) National Weather Service urge Americans to "Be Air Aware" during Air Quality Awareness Week, April 27 - May 1, 2009. Bicycling or walking for errands when possible helps not only with air quality, but your fitness level, and the City of Decatur is a very walkable city!
