Press Release, June 18th 2021
The New England Mountain Bike Association (NEMBA) and Eco-Counter are excited to announce that the Brattleboro-Keene Chapter of NEMBA (BK-NEMBA) is the winner of this summer’s grant program to support data collection on trails.
Through the grant, BK-NEMBA are awarded two PYRO Box Evo portable trail counters for the summer, in addition to expert assistance from Eco-Counter on setting up a count program and getting the most out of their data.
BK-NEMBA was formed in 2009 to advocate for improved access to Pisgah State Park and steward trails in the Keene (NH) to Brattleboro (VT) area. The chapter works in partnership with public and private landowners to improve access and build strong positive relationships with land managers.
Stay tuned to our blog and newsletter, in addition to the NEMBA Facebook page for photo and data updates from the BK-NEMBA count program this summer. This fall, tune into a joint follow up webinar to discover what they were able to do with one summer’s worth of data.
