Thank you to our volunteers and participating community members for your hard work and support! Together we hope to make the Connecticut Trail Census an efficient and successful model for trail use data collection by volunteers.
Happy New Year from the Connecticut Trail Census as we plan for this THIRD data collection year! In the 3+ years since the program inception, the goal has remained to make a real impact on the state’s multi-use trail systems. With funding applications completed and submitted, planning continues on proposed program improvements in hopes of good news!
On that regard, we are excited to share that we are hoping to be able to provide more support to our volunteer participants in their efforts to complete the program requirements and utilize the program to its full potential. In order to ensure we make the absolute best use of some new and improved program resources as well as maximize its impact and effectiveness, we are re-evaluating program ‘Trail Sites’, or where the infrared (IR) pedestrian counters are installed and an ‘application’ is required from both currently participating Trail Sites and proposed new Trail Sites. Application will take 5-10 minutes to complete and is due no later that Sunday, January 13, 2019.
