Volunteers Needed for Trail SurveysVolunteers are needed to conduct surveys of visitors on the Arizona Trail in Saguaro National Park East (Rincon Mountains) in 2013. If you have a few hours or days to spend over the next six months and donít mind asking folks a few questions about their experience (the survey only takes about one minute to complete) please contact Matt Nelson () for details. Surveys must take place on the Arizona Trail within Saguaro National Park; this includes Hope Camp Trail, Quilter Trail, Manning Camp Trail, Mica Mountain Trail, Italian Spring Trail. The best trailhead for intercepting visitors is the Camino Loma Alta trailhead near Vail.
