Boise Parks and Rec Needs Help Surveying Foothills Users

Every year for the past six years, the Boise Parks and Recreation Department sends out a team of dedicated volunteers who spend a weekend staked out at various trailheads around the city. There, volunteers conduct a quick survey to hikers, mountain bikers, dog walkers and trail users about their foothills experience.

Volunteers will again administer the foothills trail use survey on Saturday, Sept. 19 and Saturday, Sept. 26.

Boise Parks and Rec is seeking volunteers willing to give up four hours of their Saturday to conduct the one-page surveys, used in management decisions for the 150 miles of trails and thousands of acres of open space on the Boise Front. Shifts run 7-11 a.m., 11 a.m.-3 p.m. and 3-7 p.m.

There are 19 trailheads that need canvasing, including three at Bogus Basin as well as Eighth and Ninth streets, Camel's Back Park, Cartwright, Corrals, Cottonwood, Hillside to Hollow, Homestead, Lower Hull's Gulch, Table Rock and Polecat.
