2017 Funding Priority | Amount needed: $13,661
This project would purchase an electric vehicle for use in the Newhalem campgrounds. Volunteer campground hosts would use the vehicle to move through the campground on a more regular basis to increase visitor contacts, provide light maintenance, and check compliance. The electric vehicle has no emissions and the open design makes it easy for camp hosts to get in and out and for visitors to feel the vehicle and hosts are approachable. The electric vehicle is also nearly silent, making it a desirable addition to campground operations.
