Getting to Know You

Last month a monkey sent out a survey to MVIHES members.

No wait, that's not right.

  

 

 

 

 MVIHES sent a quesurveymonkeystionaire via  SurveyMonkey to find out what makes our members tick. The survey results are in and here's what they tell us.

Of the members who responded to the survey, about 70%  volunteer between one day to more than a week each year, with 27% volunteering more than a week. That must be why we get so much done!

The remaining 30% are too busy to volunteer (we've all experienced that in our lives) but are members because they want to stay informed about the health of the watershed. That's awesome!

 In fact, when asked why they like being a member, 57% said it was to stay informed about health of the watershed. Since more than one reason for being a member was allowed,  68% of the responses included participating in projects that interest them, and 71% were for "just being outdoors".

The top three activities were salmon fry salvage, smolt counting, and doing surveys on fish habitat and forage fish. The least favourite activity was fundraising. 

 

 

 Training courses that members would like to take, in order of preference are: BIOENGINEERING, RAINGARDENS (how to design), BEAVERS AND THE ROLE THEY PLAY, BASIC STREAM and BEACH ECOLOGY, and one that is particularly relevant in our community, a course on  WHAT SENIORS CAN DO to help MVIHES achieve its goals.

When asked how satisfied/dissatisfied they were with being a member, 50% were very satisfied and 50% were satisfied. We must be doing something right. 

 No question about it, we have great members!
