Analysis of Performance
This is a quarterly metric.
The target is to reach 5% of the Fort Collins population (171,100) each year, or 8,560 people annually. In the third quarter, Natural Areas staff and volunteers provided 92 activities for 2,687 people, below the target. This is due to program cancellations because of weather plus a strategic focus on higher quality programming with smaller groups, and repeated experiences for deeper impact.
Activities in Q4 include scheduled programming in the Explorer and Eagle Watches.
