Dane County Parks and Zoo Access and Equity Program Evaluation

The Office of the Dane County Board is working with Keen Independent Research to conduct a program evaluation using a racial and social equity lens and provide recommendations for strategies and actions to advance racial and social equity and access at Dane County Parks and the Henry Vilas Zoo.

As part of this study, Keen Independent will perform in-depth qualitative and quantitative research to assist the County in forming a better understanding of the demographics of who is and is not utilizing its public spaces, and why. The goal of this project is to develop recommendations for how the County can improve access to its facilities, lands, properties and programs, and ultimately become a more inclusive, equitable and racially just place for all.
