Data Collection 101 - Trail Based Data Collection for New Volunteers
Volunteers collecting data as part of the CT Trail Census will be required to participate in this face to face training prior to data collection times in May and September. Participants will learn how to prepare for and assess the CT Trail Census Intercept Survey including logistics and setup, safety, approaching trail users, checking for completeness, handling completed surveys, and volunteer hour tracking.  Participants will also be able to communicate the goals and purpose of the Trail Census and learn basic maintenance techniques for the infrared trail counters.  Trail coordinators will receive materials that they will need to conduct the intercept surveys.

** Note the dates of these trainings have changed since the introductory webinar in October.**

Three dates currently offered. Click the links below to register!  Space is limited.
*** DATA UPDATE *** 
The Infrared counters have been collecting preliminary data on most CT Trail Census locations for about three months!  As more data is collected we'd like to make sure we communicate it to you in a format that is most useful. In the next several weeks trail coordinators will receive a call from our intern Carrie Flanagan, an SCSU master's candidate in public health, who will be asking how you intend to use data from the Census.  We're happy to schedule a meeting with you and your community partners - planners, local elected officials, educators -and other partners to think through the data we'll have available and how you might use it!
The Connecticut Trail Census is a statewide multi-use trail user study and volunteer data collection program.  If you have questions or information to include in these periodic emails please contact Laura Brown or Aaron Budris at
