Vancouver, Wash. - Each September, volunteers compile trail data for planning future trail projects and supporting grant applications and other funding requests.

Clark County is working with other agencies to marshal volunteers who will count runners, walkers and cyclists on trails and pathways in the Portland-Vancouver area.

This year, four new trail count locations have been added, including Whipple Creek Regional Park and the Chelatchie Prairie Railroad trailhead. Volunteers are needed to help with weekday trail counts from 5-7 p.m. Sept. 12-14 and weekend counts from 9-11 a.m. Sept. 16-17. Volunteers will be trained.

Other trail count locations in Clark County include:

* Frenchman's Bar and Vancouver Lake Trail at the Blurock Landing trailhead
* Salmon Creek Greenway Trail at the Vancouver Girls Softball Association trailhead
* Columbia River Renaissance Trail
* Burnt Bridge Creek Trail at the Northeast Devine Road trailhead and near Northwest 78th Street-Lakeshore Avenue
* Padden Parkway Trail at Northeast 94th Avenue
* Lacamas Trail at the Northeast Goodwin Road trailhead.

Interested in volunteering? Please go to see the full list of counting locations, sign up for one of two training sessions and register when and where you will help. The training sessions are:

* 5-6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 5, Vancouver City Hall, 415 W. Sixth St.
* 5-6:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 7, Clark County Public Works Operations Center, 4700 N.E. 78th St., Conference Room B-1.
