COG is looking for volunteers to help monitor solitude in the Huston Park Wilderness and Encampment River Wilderness.
What is solitude monitoring? The goal is to determine how many other people you’re apt to see in a given area. We do that by hiking or horseback riding the trails and documenting human encounters.
The project, which is part of a broader initiative to help preserve the tranquil nature of wilderness areas, will be ongoing throughout the rest of the season.
Interested in volunteering? Sign up here, and our project coordinator, Meghan Kent, will be in touch.
