The National Visitor Use Monitoring (NVUM)
survey is being conducted on the Okanogan-
Wenatchee National Forest starting October 1,
2019 and will go through September 30, 2020.

“The survey is entirely voluntary,” said Forest
Recreation Program Manager Suzanne Cable.
“It is extremely important for people to
participate so we can assess visitor experiences
on the national forest and strive to make it a
better place to visit. We really appreciate all
those who are willing to answer a few
questions. It’s important for interviewers to
talk with local people using the forest, as well
as out-of-area visitors, so all are represented in
the study.”
