Join us for a hike in the Encampment River Wilderness to help out with a solitude study!

When?

We'll meet at the Stadium parking lot at 7:00 am to carpool to the Encampment River Wilderness trailhead. Please RSVP by clicking the link here.

What are we doing?

We'll be hiking the Encampment River Wilderness and helping the Forest Service by recording solitude (which basically means documenting how many other people we encounter).

Why are we doing this? 

Currently, there is no data on solitude for our Encampment River and Huston Park wildernesses. This is a problem because solitude is a wilderness characteristic, and this lack of data makes it harder to get resources to support these areas. We're asking volunteers to get out there, enjoy the wilderness, and complete a short survey when they're done.

Busy on October 6th, but want to be involved?

Getting involved couldn’t be easier—all we ask is for you to complete a short survey when you hike, hunt, ride horses or fish in the Encampment River or Huston Park wildernesses recording where you were, for how long, and how many people you ran into. Anytime now-October 31st, grab a friend or two and head out to the Encampment River and Huston Park wildernesses. Just complete this form and send it back to commonoutdoorground@gmail.com when you’re done.
