Short Description of Activity
We had 7 members participate one or more times to complete 7 Solitude Monitoring Surveys on 4 or our five assigned trails. We have sign ups for August and September to complete our commitment. The surveys include gathering data on how many encounters there are, how many people in each encounter and data regarding campsites.
We have the same team of members completing these Solitude Monitoring Surveys this year as last year. Completing Solitude Monitoring on USFS trails continues to be a favorite activity of our members. Some go alone. Some go with a friend. We have had great participation in this activity this year.
