AUSTIN, MN — Some extra sets of eyes are on the lookout along trails in the city of Austin.
Vision 2020 volunteers and local boy scouts are counting the number of people who are using the bike and walk trails.
The count is being done to track the group’s goal of increased trail usage in the community.
“We hope by educating them that the trails exist and by encouraging them to use it, and making them safer, more people will use them,” Bike-Walk Committee Volunteer Robin Krueger said. “Then, we should be able to say everyone in our town has used the trails one point in their lifetime. They know they exist.”
The group will be counting users again this Saturday.
And is something they will look to continue each year
