Don’t be surprised if you are asked a few interesting questions when you visit the National Forest over the next 12 months.

 

Forest officials with the Deschutes and Ochoco National Forests and the Crooked River National Grassland will begin a national forest survey, where they hope to find out just what everyone thinks about the National Forests.

 

Recreation Program Manager Mark Christiansen says the survey results are very useful:  "Anytime that we can get valuable feedback from the public on their experiences, on their wants, and needs as well as come up with visitor use data, it's always helpful for us in a variety of areas, whether it be grants for federal funding."

 

Christiansen says student volunteers will stop random visitors leaving the forest and ask them about their experience and how things can be improved.

 

They do the survey every five years and they begin October first and will be ongoing for 12 months.
