SOU students seek input on the future of the Bear Creek Greenway

Efforts to repair the Bear Creek Greenway after the Almeda Fire are ongoing, and a group of SOU graduate students has issued a survey to collect feedback on what the future looks like.

ASHLAND, Ore. — As volunteers continue to work on restoring the Bear Creek Greenway in the wake of the Almeda Fire, a group of graduate students from Southern Oregon University have produced a survey to gauge what the community believes should be the future of the project.

The Almeda Fire and several smaller brush fires burned much of the Greenway between Ashland and Central Point in early September, and Jackson County has spearheaded efforts to re-seed the area — both to restore the Greenway and help with erosion control.

Though the restoration project began in October, it is still very much underway.

Graduate students from SOU'S School of Business are working on a research project about the Greenway restoration project, and it hinges on a survey of the public.

"The results of the survey will provide information about your Bear Creek Greenway experiences," the survey page reads. "The survey will help identify opportunities for the reconstruction following the Almeda fire of the Bear Creek Greenway to align with the priorities of the local community and other Bear Creek Greenway users."

The survey is open to people 18 years and older who give consent to participate, and the page promises that all information is strictly confidential. Only group data will be reported.
