The Texas Active Living Network helps communities provide for Active Living opportunities for regular, daily physical activity through the built environment and policy changes. TALN does this in the following ways:

  • TALN provides information and education on building trails, bikeways, and other transportation, recreation, and conservation infrastructure to encourage active lifestyles for Texans.
  • TALN develops and promotes programs to help Texans learn safe and effective ways to participate in physical activity as a part of an active lifestyle.
  • TALN coordinates efforts and policy among our members and similar organizations throughout Texas for the benefit of all Texans.

The Texas Active Living Network was formed as an ad-hoc coalition by the Texas Department of State Health Services Nutrition, Physical Activity, and Obesity Prevention program (NPAOP). Members have backgrounds in public health, parks and recreation, transportation, bicycle/pedestrian outreach and advocacy, community and regional planning, and local government.
