Volunteers Needed - Spring 2021 FOLAR Trail Counts

"If you build it, will they come?"  We can answer, "If you build biking and walking trails, they WILL come,"  with a resounding "YES" because of volunteers like you who count people walking and bikingon the Appomattox River Trail.

Sign up for Spring 2021 Trail Counts.

WHAT ARE TRAIL COUNTS? Trail Counts are important biannual counts conducted along the Appomattox River Trail.  Supported by volunteers like you, this effort gathers vital data about biking and walking activity to improve planning and design of future trails for allof us to use.

HOW IT WORKS. Volunteers choose a day/time (or two) and location(s) from the list of sites and then count and document the number of people walking and biking along their trail section for a 2-hour period. 

DATES: May 13 & May 15

TIMES: 10:00am - 12 noon or 4:00pm - 6:00pm

Click here for a map of all of the Trail Count locations. Use the form below to register for the day(s) and time(s) you would like to volunteer. 

Training materials and specific count locations will be sent following registration. YOU MUST RETURN COMPLETED FORMS TO VOLUNTEER. Please contact Heather Barrar at [email protected] with any question or concerns you might have. 

A note on COVID-19: Trail Counts are an outdoor, solo volunteering activity that is in alignment with COVID-19 safety precautions. We believe that trail counts can provide valuable information about the impacts of the pandemic and allow for continuity of long-term data collection. That being said, please do not volunteer if you feel unwell, if you are self-quarantining for any reason, or if you feel unsafe participating. If you do volunteer, please be sure to abide by the 6 foot distancing recommendations, wear a mask and consider brining your own seating.
