NELSONVILLE, Ohio (AP) - The Wayne National Forest is scheduled to begin conducting a nearly year-long voluntary survey that will quiz visitors about the recreational activities that they participated in during their trip to the forest in southeast Ohio.

Officials say Forest Service employees will begin to implement the survey Thursday. They say the answers will help forest planners and tourism officials determine future recreation needs as well as the number of visitors to the location.

Employees are expected to talk to visitors as they leave the forest's developed recreation areas including campgrounds, trailheads, picnic areas and beaches.

Officials say the interview lasts about six minutes and the answers are confidential.
