Evergreen Ecological Observation Network (EEON)

Human Impacts

Picture1

In 2009, a group of researchers conducted a human impacts assessment of the TESC EEON network. Their project involved interviews with local forest users, trailhead surveys, and counts of users. They conducted a thorough mapping project to determine density, location, and type of all non-official human structures (dump sites, structures, abandoned campsites, ec.). They compiled the work in a single presentation and paper.  The paper is posted here. Contact us if you have any further questions about this interesting project!

    This is a great project! Thanks for doing this research and sharing it with the wider community.
    I was curious to know if all the dog walkers are picking up after their pets, and if there was a main type of garbage found (plastic, paper, camping items, etc).
