Inland Woods + Trails' Economic Contribution of Summer Outdoor Recreation

Purpose: The purpose of this survey is to measure how outdoor recreation in the greater Bethel and Rumford area contributes to the local economy. In addition, the survey will collect information on outdoor recreation habits, user opinions, and demographics to help understand who are using the trails and lands, and how management and development may be directed in the future.

Who Can Participate: Any person 18 or older who has an interest in outdoor recreation may participate in the survey.

Risks of Participating: There are no inherent risks to participation other than the time it takes to complete. The survey takes about 15 minutes to complete.

Potential Benefits: Your participation and response will help create a publicly available report that will outline how outdoor recreation activities contribute to the local economy, and will help guide future decisions by Inland Woods + Trails when developing public lands for the purposes of recreation.

Anonymity: Your response will be kept completely anonymous. No information you provide in the survey can be linked to you or your computer in any way.
