Volunteers needed to help with Greenbelt Survey

Volunteers are needed Tuesday, Sept. 18, and Saturday, Sept. 22, to help conduct a survey of Greenbelt

Data collected from the 1-page  survey will be used in management decisions for the 22.5 miles of Greenbelt pathways maintained by Boise Parks & Recreation.  Managers use survey results to measure satisfaction and identify needs and problem areas on the Greenbelt.

Teams of 2-3 volunteers are needed in four-hour shifts at a variety of locations. Time shifts are from:

  •  7:00-11:00 a.m.
  • 11:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.
  • 3:00-6:00 p.m.

To sign up online, see bit.ly/IOmN8R and type “Boise Greenbelt Survey” in the search box. Or contact Jerry Pugh, Boise Parks & Recreation volunteer coordinator, via email at jpugh@cityofboise.org, or by calling (208) 608-7617.
