There are three reasons we ask for a Maintenance Report from FoOT Volunteers:1. We collect Volunteer Hours, mileage driven, and gender information needed by the USFS. They are required to submit this information in their volunteer reports and the information helps them maintain support for volunteer programs. It will also be helpful to FoOT in showing how much we contribute when we apply for funding grants in the future, or need help from other groups.2. We want to maintain the database on current trail status. This is a real service to Ouachita Trail users and will help FoOT generate future support. In the time we have had this information on the website, we have had a remarkable number of people interested and asking questions.3. We want to know what work FoOT, the USFS, or the state parks need to plan on doing.
