Volunteers needed to count Lakefront Trail users

Volunteers needed!

The Active Transportation Alliance is looking for volunteers to help with a trail users count on the Chicago Lakefront Trail. The Chicago Park District wants accurate counts of trail users so that they can assess future needs and show funders how busy it is. We need people to count cyclists, pedestrians, and other Lakefront Trail users. The project will take place between August 21st and 27th, 2010. Three shifts are available; Saturday 12pm-4pm, Tuesday 5am-9am and 3pm-7pm.

Minimum time requirement is 4 hours (1 for training and materials, 3 hours per survey period).
