The next round of participation in the Indiana Trails Study is coming up soon. We are in need of volunteers who can work during the week of June 5 to distribute survey invitations. Surveys invitation will be distributed at Peru Kroger and Wallick Road, Lover's Lane and Kokomo trail heads.

If you are able to help out during this time frame, please email momof2dd@comcast.net to let us know which day(s) you are available and whether morning, afternoon or evening works best (so that we can ensure we don’t have overlap) and whether you have a location preference. We are still working a 2-hour shift during those times. For instance, if you work a morning, you will simply pick a convenient 2 hour time period between 8 and noon to work.
