    Webinar Outline


    Thanks to the generous sponsorship from Eco-Counter, this webinar is free to the public.

    Trail count data is an essential tool to capture usage trends, justify spending and communicate with local stakeholders. For many organizations, understanding when trails are used, and how that growth is developing over time, is essential for justifying the existence of trials. But what are the best practices for collecting trail count data? Where should counters be placed, or when should counting occur? How can trail count data be communicated with local leaders, peer organizations and the public?

    During this data session, learn from industry experts, advocates, and practitioners about how to collect and apply trail count data, and how to leverage that data in order to achieve meaningful, tangible changes in your community.

    Speakers are TBD.

    Learning Objectives:

    • Understand the importance of collecting trail count data and gain an understanding of the different methodologies and technologies to do so.
    • Learn how leading trail organizations have collected trail count data and how that data contributes to trail planning, funding and management.
    • Be inspired as to how and where count data can be collected on your trails, in addition to how that data could support your trail planning goals.
