Volunteers needed to help with trail count

In an effort to improve conditions for walkers, joggers, bikers and wheelchair users in the area, the North Clackamas Parks and Recreation District (NCPRD), Clackamas County Parks, the cities of Happy Valley and Milwaukie, and 16 other local partners will participate in the National Bicycle & Pedestrian Documentation Project next month.

This event seeks to count and survey trail and bike lane users. Trail count data is used to help determine where and when to build new trails and to respond to the needs of trail users.

NCPRD needs volunteers to help with the trail count at six different locations during shifts. Counting occurs on Sept. 15-17 from 5-7 p.m., and on Sept. 19-20 from 9-11 a.m. Each shift is two hours at one location. Volunteers will be trained and receive specific instructions on how to do the counts.

Trail count locations include:

Those interested in volunteering can attend a volunteer training session at 6 p.m. on Sept. 1 at the Milwaukie Center, 5440 SE Kellogg Creek Drive in Milwaukie. RSVP to Samantha Wolf, 503-742-4685 or swolf@clackamas.us.

NCPRD is a service district of Clackamas County dedicated to providing exceptional parks and recreation programs, facilities and services. The district – which serves more than 116,000 residents in a 36-square mile area – includes more than 38 parks, 25 natural areas, 15 miles of trails including the six-mile Trolley Trail, Mount Talbert Nature Park and three facilities: Hood View Sports Complex, the Milwaukie Center and the North Clackamas Aquatic Park.
