Recreation surveys underway

-A A +A

PERRY COUNTY – The Hoosier National Forest will conduct a voluntary recreation-visitor survey during the coming year.
The nationwide survey is designed to determine how many people visit the forest and what recreational activities visitors participate in while they are there.

Forest Service employees may be seen talking with visitors as they leave the Hoosier National Forest’s developed recreation areas, in the wilderness area, or in general forest-area roads and trailheads.

Interview sites are marked with “Traffic Survey Ahead” signs, and the interviewers will be wearing Forest Service uniforms and bright orange vests.

Responses to the recreation survey are voluntary and completely confidential. Names are not included on the survey form.

The interview takes approximately 15-20 minutes. The visitor will be asked for information regarding how many people are in their group, the length of their visit, their level of satisfaction with facilities and services, and how much money they spent during the visit.

Additionally visitors will be asked why they visited the National Forest.
