VOLUNTEERS Needed to Conduct Fall TRAIL COUNTS

FOLAR organizes counts of pedestrian and bike use of the Appomattox River Trail twice each year at key access points. Using a national, standardized process, counts provide valuable data that is used to improve and inform pedestrian and bike infrastructure planning and design.

Volunteers are needed for counting on Thursday, September 19th and Saturday, September 21st between 10am-12pm or 5pm-7pm.  

Trail Count volunteers who complete their shift(s) will be entered into a drawing for a great FOLAR gift!
