Stop and take the survey! Mt. Tam Watershed Visitor Survey Needs Your Input
The MMWD Watershed Recreation Plan will focus on visitor data collection in August, September, and October, including random in-person census surveys on Mt. Tam. These surveys will evaluate the patterns of visitation and experiences that different visitors are having on the watershed. The Mt. Tam visitor survey needs your input!
Stop and Take The Survey!
Watershed Data Collection Survey
YOU NEED TO STOP and take the survey if you see one underway when you are riding on Mt. Tam. Bicyclists have been underrepresented in similar surveys as we tend not to stop for activities such as this. If you see surveys being conducted while riding on the watershed PLEASE STOP and participate! It’s the only way they will capture our needs and desires as off-road cyclists.
We don’t know where or when these surveys will be conducted, so watch for people with clipboards near popular trailheads and destinations such as Alpine Dam, Phoenix Lake, Azalea Hill, Old Railroad Grade, and Rock Springs parking lot. Please stop and take the survey!
Community Workshop #3 will take place on Wednesday, September 14th from 5:00 -7:00 p.m. Mark your calendar!
This virtual meeting will focus on stewardship, partnership, and outreach programs. This is a great opportunity to mention that the cycling community is a workforce, specifically in terms of volunteerism for trail building, maintenance, invasive removal, and habitat restoration. We are a resource for education on the watershed and many of our members would join an ambassador program.
Mark your calendar for the September 14 meeting and join our Watershed Teams to receive meeting reminders and talking points.

Lead by example
Please be a bicycle ambassador while riding on public lands!
Follow speed limits (15 MPH MAX), passing protocols (5 MPH when passing), and make your presence known with a “Howdy”, “Hi!” or a ring of the bell before passing other trail users. Slow way down when passing all users (hikers, bikers, runners and equestrians) whether on trails or fire roads. And don’t forget to stop and take the Mt. Tam Watershed Survey if you’re riding by!
